blue cow moo wonders .... and knits and crochets

Folksy Listing

Thursday, 6 March 2014


Humans have been trying to harvest honey for thousands of years. Skeps have been used as a rudimentary hive for at least 2,000 years. Essentially they are baskets made from wicker or straw placed open-end down. So when I made a crochet bee for my Spring Beasties Headband my daughter suggested I make a beehive hat so that bees had somewhere to live. I am really pleased with the end results - the hat was a fairly simple make once I'd found the right stitch pattern but the booties took a little longer as I kept refining the design as I made the pair. They have a simple crochet edging that looks a little like a leaf.

So, I am proud to present the Skep Hat and Booties:

They are available with and without bees:

Small Business Woman

This week will see the official start of my company Bowyers Lime
It appears that Mike's support is based on the fact that he can now say he is married to a small business woman.
