Wow. Every now and then there’s a knitting pattern that takes our little world of sticks and string by storm.
Just a week ago, designer Stephanie Dosen, known by many on Ravelry as tinyowlknits, launched a new pattern for a quilt, made of tiny hexagons of stuffed sock yarn. They look like little honeycombs, so she called it the Beekeepers Quilt. Sweet!
To say it’s taken off is something of an understatement.
As I write this there are already 182 Beekeepers Quilt projects on Ravelry. A Beekeepers Quilt knit along thread created in the Ravelry tinyowlknits group has had more than 1500 posts by knitters over the moon about this amazing pattern.
If you’re familiar with Stephanie’s work you’ll know that the quilt is just the latest in a series of ingenious and highly creative designs. Where does she get all those incredible ideas from? I can’t imagine, but I’m v jealous.
I’m also really pleased for her latest success, as she is one super-talented designer, and a jolly nice lady to boot. You go girl!
