It was Felix’s birthday yesterday! And her party too!
As mentioned in my previous posts I knitted lots of butterflies and tiny bees for the party games and party bags, and after building a section of honeycomb on Monday it was realised that the bees were too small to toss!
So I knitted an emergency batch of large bees! And after that, I realised I had to out them in something when not in use, so I needed a beehive!
I used my own free pattern for this one – cocoon or chrysalis – on 8mm and tweaked the colours, but it got done!
Then Felix said that since the bees had a house, the butterflies needed one too…so…
Again using my own pattern. Finished this one on Friday evening…
The day itself was great, Felix loved her main present, a baby Mexican red knee tarantula, and the party was the crazy kind of chaos that small children thrive on!
I could seriously do with sleeping for a week now though!
Chat more later!
