Zeebee Fever and other maladies

I got the bug. The stomach bug, yes, but more to your interest – Zeebee Fever. It’s madness, I tell you. Totally overtakes the mind, the hands, the head.

pattern: Zeebee by Schmeebot
for: Tiny Dancer
Handspun, Handpainted, Colorblock Merino, in Wabi Sabi, from Pancake and Lulu – I am mad for this yarn
needles: KP Options, size 10
size: 18″ circumference (for a 20.5″ head)
dates: December 5-6
verdict: I love this yarn, I’m crazy about this pattern, and I made it both too loose and too short (something I actually have a history of doing). This was my second attempt on this particular hat, (already tried three times on a Zeebee for Little Buddha as well) and I am going to frog and try one more time to get it just right. I have just enough of the yarn left that I think I can make it work. Even as is, though, it’s pretty darn cute. And the boys love it.

(he’s being a bunny – those fingers are his carrots)

the cool thing about doing this hat with the colorblock hat is that you can change what color the hat is from the front – Tiny Dancer likes the blue in front, Little Buddha likes the green

And just so you can’t ever say I never show you WIPs anymore:

Little Buddha’s Zeebee
3rd attempt
soon to be frogged
will most likely run out of this glorious Pancake and Lulu yarn….

My Zeebee Fever is in temporary remission while I deal with a strong case of Sock-itis.

We’re having a winter storm here today, which would be prime knitting weather if it weren’t for a few other things – like the need to get the house in order for company coming in – WHAT?!? – five days. I hope wherever you are, you are staying warm, staying safe, and getting your knit on!

  1. Ack! I must knit this hat! I love the colorway on your WIP yarn.
