The other day I stopped in at Fancy Tiger, a little locally-owned fabric and yarn shop crammed full of good stuff. To just look, you know. But I was weak, I think from all that cleaning and gardening I've been doing around here lately.
The first thing I wanted was the t-shirt yarn from Cape Town, South Africa. Really, I wanted the pattern that was on the label so I had to get the yarn. Then I saw the Moda bee cloth and well, I do have some bees in the birdhouse in the back -- it was meant to be. And then as long as I was stash-building, why not pick up a few fat quarters?
Oh, and an Amy Butler pattern.
But that was all.
As I was knitting, I realized this little camera case was a hexagon. Hmm, look at that, the yarn is named Be Sweet with a bee graphic on the label. Aren't the bees in the birdhouse in the back making little wax hexagons all day long? And come to think of it, that bee cloth has hexagons, and don't I have those little plastic forms to make hexagons.
I was hexed (in a good way).
Bee happy this weekend! xo
