There is nothing quite like the color and taste of real honey, and we would not have honey without honeybees. I love listening to the gentle hum of their wings as they flit about collecting pollen and nectar. As you work this pattern you will see bees wings and honeycombs come into existence with each stitch. What better homage to the honeybees and their delicious honey than a sock?
