Tiny sweaters are getting boring. Time to move onto tiny socks, but a new beehive needs watching. Providing the beehive with a convenient bee watching stump allows socks to be knitted and bees to be watched simultanously. Also, since the hive stand is built for two beehives but only holds one, there is a convenient ledge to place a beer, resulting in a very pleasant afternoon. Look! Multitasking!
And no, the bees do not mind being knit at. They are good bees and have more important things to do than worry about the large calm object nearby.
The tiny sock pattern is the class sock from Charlene Schurch’s “Sensational Knitted Socks,” which was designed to teach sock architecture.
