Body done! Sleeves are also done and I’m currently knitting the neckband (that’s it in the second photo!). If I continue to have a horrible cold for the next few days it should be finished before next weekend :D
In “Bee Works”, Canadian artist Sarah Hatton creates works with dead honey bees to bring attention to the environmental implications of pesticides, climate change and other potential disasters that impact their hives and reflect the danger this poses to our ecosystems.

“… these patterns have symbolic ties to agriculture, particularly the monoculture crop system that is having such a detrimental effect on bees,” she explained. “In particular, neonicotinoid pesticides, which are used in many countries on these type of crops, destroy bees’ navigational systems…
Hatton says that when viewed in person, the works "produce a vertigo effect” which she likens to the bees’ loss of ability to navigate when exposed to the pesticides.“
