Bee Fingerless Mitts
I happened upon this quote from a Doctor Who book, while looking up bees online. It made me smile.
“Like all good youngsters on Gallifrey, the Doctor had been brought up with a strong awareness of how little other species new about… anything and how they usually shouldn’t been told about, well… anything, because most of the information a Time Lord might be able to offer them would at least make them retire to the country and keep bees - should their planet have bees, or similar life forms - if not actually drive them irreversibly insane.” ~From The Drosten’s Curse, by A. L. Kennedy.
Now we can all keep bees- on our hands, with these snuggly mitts.
Fingering weight yarn in 3 contrasting colors.
Animal fiber is preferable for easy blocking.
I used: Knitpicks Palette in Kumquat heather (MC), Stellar Heather (CC1) and Finnley heather (CC2).
MC 119-145M (130-160 yards), CC1 & CC2 18-26M (20-29 yards).
Knit and purl in the round, increase, decrease,
stranded colorwork, simple cables, pick up stitches.
