Nimu Yarns, Tiny Owl Knits and The Knitting Goddess.
Knitting with the yarn in one's left hand is commonly referred to as Continental knitting, German knitting, European knitting, or left-hand knitting. Unlike English knitting, the yarn is held in the left hand; the motion of bringing the yarn forward with a needle held in the other hand is thus sometimes known as picking. Continental knitting is preferred by professional hand-knitters, as it is the more efficient method, requiring the shortest number of specific hand-motions per stitch.Continental-style knitting, being associated with Germany, fell out of favour in English-speaking countries during World War II; its reintroduction in the United States is often credited to Elizabeth Zimmerman.

"On one level it is a straightforward suspense story with plenty of action, a healthy dose of humor and a pinch of sexual tension. On another it is a spiritual quest by a remarkable woman who meets an enlightened man the likes of which have never been seen in fiction before."
|Project notes on Ravelry can be found here|
- a copy of the Beekeeper's Quilt pattern (paper and electronic)
- a set of 4 x 3.25mm DPNs (I make my hexipuffs using this size, which is slightly smaller than the pattern)

- some toy filling to get you started
- all presented in a (dubiously-sewn) bag which I made for the giveaway using vintage fabric
I'm happy to post internationally. Good luck!
