I am Knittykitty’s fourth attempt at knitting this wonderfully long term project known as the beekeeper’s quilt. She originally started the pattern way back when it was first released by Tiny Owl Knits the summer of 2011. Three years and a least close to 200 puffs later, it all begins again.

In the meantime, I am watching the bag of mini-skeins that will soon become a part of my whole with great anticipation! Here’s a peak –
