The Tiny Owl Knits pattern, Beekeeper’s Quilt, has been sweeping the knitting world recently. A quilt made up of individually knit hexagons, or hexipuffs, this is a great project for using up leftover bits of lightweight yarn and satisfies that urge for instant gratification knitting. The pattern is reportedly quite addictive, and has inspired mini-skein swaps and yarn trading around the globe.
The hexipuffs have landed at Stash, and we’re churning them out for a good cause: Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Local knitters are clicking away in an attempt to knit up 600 hexipuffs by March 31, 2012. Interested? The yarn has been donated by Hayes + Associates, and is available to pickup at Stash. The colors are a cheerful palette of turquoise, yellow, red, and variegated Shibui Sock yarn. Stop by the shop to see how you can help.
Knitting for a good cause with free yarn: it doesn’t get much better than this!
