Knitting doesn’t slow down in hot weather for me. I just can’t stop. I’ve already polished off two new knits in the last few weeks despite our sauna-like apartment. So, I’ll have photos of both, finished, later this week.
But I’ve also been pouring my efforts into a project that I’m very proud and hopeful about: my very own tiny company. It’s been hard to write posts without giving it away, which unfortunately I’m still not quite ready to do. But it’s small and knitterly and I think you’re going to like it. So until then, here’s another designer’s project on the needles, the start of a free rapunzel hat as I continue my little affair with tiny owl knits:
You know tiny owl knits? I love her designs, especially the beekeeper’s quilt. Every time I see it I wish I’d had the idea first. It’s about a zillion little hexagon-shapes in different colours and patterns, stuffed and sewed together to make a blanket. Everyone loves these cute multicolour hexipuffs. Can you believe that there are 1269 projects? It’s such a huge thing to knit!
But what I really love is that people aren’t just making the quilt, they’re adapting the puffs into all kinds of things: chair cushions, cat toys, earrings, Christmas decorations, pillows; people make their own charted designs for the puffs and share them with others…really, it’s all quite weird and delightful. It’s such a big project that I don’t think anyone has finished a quilt yet – but so far there are at least a few happy cats.
