Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

FO: Drunken Bees

Posted by Amber on February 7, 2008

(You should be able to click that for a bigger, clearer shot)

Pattern: Drunken Bees by DomestiCat (man, she has a beautiful home)

Yarn: Koigu KPM, 2236; 2.05 balls.  That .05 ball?  Whole different dye lot.  All three were purchased from Purl – the first two in person in ’06, plus more online in ’08. 

Needles: Addi Turbo, US 1, 32″ – magic loop for the win!

Mods: I didn’t really change anything, but if I were to knit these again (and they were SO. MUCH. FUN, so I just might) I’d chart out the 6 stitches on each edge of the instep in order to continue the drunkeness all the way down the foot.  Instead I just knit the edge stitches in stockinette.  Nice, cozy, but less drunk.

I love these!  Warm, cozy, and so much fun to knit!  And fun to look at when you’re done.  And just all around awesome!  Go make some!
