I use a question mark on purpose in the title. I’m stumped to be honest. I’ve committed to the House of Bee and so our topic today was to blog about a masoct project. As with all the topics it is broad and open to interpretation. I searched for other blogs involved in Blog week to see what they wrote. I also searched Ravely for “bee” projects. As usual I was stunned by the number of projects that came up when I entered “bee”. It’s amazing what you find on Ravelry.
All this searching only serves as procrastination for me from actually writing the post. I don’t think there is any one project that represents a bee. By our very nature we flit from project to project. I’ve never known one project to hold me attention for a long period of time, unless I’m up against a gift deadline.
My bee mind tends to chose smaller projects that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time, allowing for me to move on to new projects. I also like projects that can easily be put down and picked up at a later (sometimes much later) date. I looked at my project page on Ravelry and I have 61 projects. Almost all the projects are hats, scarves, bags and other small projects. I’ve done two tops. I say tops because they are not sweaters, I can’t even commit to long sleeves so both are short sleeved. I’m not crazy about either one of them so for now I’ve given up on sweaters and their ilk.
I love it – mostly because it’s full of happy colors. Bees are easily distracted by shiny objects so I think the bright, fun colors attract my attention much like the beautiful flowers draw the bee in. And so I guess that’s what my mascot project is – anything that knits up quickly and uses bright colors!
