Bee Season Scarf

A scarf to wear as the last vestiges of winter give way to the warmth and color of spring...





This lovely woolly wonder is knit from Lamb's Pride worsted in a honeycomb pattern from one of my current favorite stitch dictionaries. (Oh, I know! You guys don't like these books due to lack of charts. I however, love them!)



The stitch pattern required every other stitch to go on a cable needle. At first this fact was a bit maddening, but soon I was motoring along as a rhythm began to develop. I think the entire scarf took me a few weeks to complete.

I finished the muffler off with a crocheted picot edge...



And six little needle felted bees...



The bees took me longer to make than the actual scarf! Although, I think they were definitely worth the effort!

I love the scarf-the needle felting is terrific.

BTW, Lena is really becoming a gorgeous young woman-must be scaring you a little (would be scaring me):)

If everyone blogs just a little bit more spring related items we might just convince the weather to warm up!
The bees are too sweet!

Very cute, indeed. I just wish there were a similar crochet pattern for those of us who aren't knitters. *sniff* ::puppy dog eyes::
