Beekeeper’s Quilt:: a Charity Knitting Project

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!

    This is a great idea!
    I do hope each person is purchasing the pattern though
    or it is violating copyright laws. 😦
    Good Luck!
