My mom would often say of me that, “She has a bee in her bonnet.” Other times she would murmur about me being “On a tear.” I spent a lot of time with my trusty Grolier Dictionary and Encyclopedias searching for explanations of the things she was saying about me. The closest I could come was to believe that the bee/bonnet thing meant I was buzzed about something and being on a tear meant I was off and chasing something.
I believe the proper description of my new fascination would be “B” in my bonnet, and the “B” stands for Bohus. Have you ever knit any Bohus patterns? I love Fair Isle but I certainly have never been Bohus brave. The time is NOW!
Because they are so very involved I plan to start with a hat (bonnet). I’m assembling yarns and colors and plan to start in the weeks ahead.
I can hardly wait to finish this year’s sweater because I love the colors so much. I bought the yarn before the eye surgery so the colors are not what I thought at first. Knit Pick’s Comfy is yummy yarn and I thought the color “Hawk” was a soft mink brown. It is not! Hawk is most certainly grey, but it still looks good with the coral and green for the shoulder bib.

Life is good.
