My Current Knits...

Hey wonderful readers!
Well, as I mentioned last time, I'm enjoying knitting lately. I hopped on Ravelry one day and saw the Beekeepers Quilt... I nearly fainted... look at this!

Mmmm, yummy!
So, after a bit of mental debating, I bought the pattern and got to work right away.

Maybe not right away.

There was of course the "Learning to knit" thing to tackle first.

Luckily I have a very limited amount of knitting experience. I sort of knew how to cast on and do the knit stitch. So, I awkwardly casted on 20 stitches. It took me a few tries to get it loose enough so I could spread them over two needles, but eventually, I figured that out.
Then there was the knitting in rounds problem and the increasing problem and the decreasing problem and the abbreviation problem and.... you get the picture.
But good old google prevailed again.

What's that? You want to see my puffs? Well, I suppose...

After a few trial and error sessions, I was up and running. Making hexagons left and right. No, they are by no means perfect. Some of them don't even have sides of the same length. But, I'm knitting cute little puffs of goodness. ♥

Well, that's it for today! :)
I hope you have an absolutely perfect day!
