Mini beasts!

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!

    I applaud your last minute emergency knits! The beehive is particularly effective!

    I think you have well earned a few quiet days!
