Yesterday, I discovered that I am in House of Bee (if that makes no sense at all, check out yesterday's post, google 4KCBWDAY1, or go straight to the source at Eskimimi Makes).
Today's prompt is:
Your task today is to either think of or research a project that embodies that house/animal. It could be a knitting or crochet pattern – either of the animal itself or something that makes you think of the qualities of that house... Whatever you choose, decide upon a project and blog about how and why it relates to your house/creature. You do not have to make this project! It is simply an exercise in blogging about how you come to decide upon what projects to make.
Ok, so, House of Bee... I could talk about the Honey Cowl, but I've already made one of those. Black and yellow stripes? Probably not - I don't tend to buy yellow yarn ;)
Although this prompt is about how I choose my projects, the connection to bees did make me think of something slightly different... An ongoing mission to try and identify a stitch pattern.
How does it relate? Well, it's a honeycomb pattern *laughs* That's pretty bee-like, I think ;)
Years ago (before I started knitting) I bought a cardigan. Once I started knitting, I decided that I wanted to identify the stitch pattern so that I could use it on other projects. The problem is, I have not managed to find the pattern anywhere :(
I've searched every stitch dictionary I can find, looked up every variation of stitch that includes the word "honeycomb" and I still haven't found it.
Here's a picture of the wrong side - which leads me to conclude that there is some type of slipped stitch involved:
This is a project with no real conclusion - so I'm throwing it out there as a request. Dear reader, do you have any idea what this might be?
Maybe my project should be to learn more about construction, and experiment with some yarn to see if I can replicate this pattern.
I took a picture of the stitch pattern against the window, to see if that might make it easier to identify - I'm not sure it helps though *laughs*
