Stella’s bee

Probably the most complex thing I’ve ever knitted. Each individual bit was not that difficult, but all together it’s a remarkably complex little work. I think I could’ve stuffed the body a little more to get a more sturdy neck.

I also wonder if it would’ve been a stronger design to do the head from the top down, then pick up stitches and do the body top down as well.

On the other hand, the whole thing is ridiculously adorable, and the recipient (a co-worker with a year-old daughter) was delighted. I may make another, as I have lots of all the colors except the black.
