I found a wonderful tutorial on Rebeccas blog for a knitted bumblebee. It was very easy to follow and I started out making three of them. I tried different yarn types to see how it went on. That´s why they each has their own personality.
I got so inspired that I wrote a poem to go with them. It´s in norwegian but I can say it´s all about proving negative thoughts wrong.
I´m giving the guy on the left to a very special friend along with the poem. Thank you for changing my life.
The two others are also about to find new homes.
The bumblebee can fly - and so can we. I´ve decided to never listen to all things making me think I can´t fly.
So don´t ever let anyone tell you that you can´t fly.
I think the quote from Mary Kay Ash says it all:
Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway
