Honey Bee was inspired by those very important small creatures on whom we depend for food. I dyed half the skein a cheerful yellow with a bit of orange, and I dyed the other half a soft black. I think this would make a fantastic little boy's hat, newborn baby cocoon or fun shawl or winter socks.
I dyed this yarn on Squoosh DK yarn base using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique.
Honey Bee on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Honey Bee would look great with Sunflower (same yellow) and Little Black Dress.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit using to give you an idea of how it can work up.
