I’ll admit to being charmed by the concept of the Beekeeper’s Quilt that is kind of taking the knitting world by storm right now.

Pretty soon, Ravelry will be swarmed by them. They do look pretty sweet. I wouldn’t want to get stung by the pain of sewing all the pieces together however, so I’m staying very far away from even thinking about starting this sticky project.

But what I did want to share is the amazing mind that is Tiny Owl Knits, the mastermind behind this pattern. If you think that this blanket is batshit…. wait until you meet the designer:

today’s emotional deck* rollercoaster?

Finding out that a mistake that caused the team to mix 10 extra bags of concrete (at a cost of ~$30), will actually save over $150 in hardware and lumber (as opposed to involving the use of a something called a “demo saw”, or digging up and repouring sixteen 48″ footings).

*I might have mentioned that I’m building a deck, if I ever updated this blog anymore.
