Since Scheepjes released their new Whirligig yarn in the color 'Plum to ochre' I was inspired by the color and the name to make a new design inspired by bees. It is no secret I absolutely love bees and it has been a while since I designed something bee-inspired. I thought about walking in the sun through big plum orchards where the bees would buzz overhead in the white plum blossom clouds.
The pattern is part of my Poetry Collection, so it is accompanied by a poem or text to hopefully let you immerse yourself in the pattern.
