A queen bee in a field of honeycombs. I was really inspired by the colors found in a skein of Malabrigo Sock in Turner with dirty yellows, grays and hints of purple to create a mitten with one of my favorite bugs on it. These mittens start with a Latvian Braid, have an afterthought thumb and are grafted together at the top.

These mittens take 1 skein each of 2 colors of Malabrigo Sock (100% Superwash Merino Wool, 440y/100g) and are shown in
MC - #195 Black
CC - #851 Turner
