91) A Sandy Pathway by Rachel Leach - companion to 91bee Nomada fabriciana, the Fabricius' Nomad Bee
Inspired by this locally spun 4-ply yarn I loved the texture created when it is knitted in such a way to incorporate pockets of air. This tiny bee is quite vulnerable as it chooses to nestle within the sandy pathways of the wild heathlands of southern England. I wanted to create a work that draws you in close and makes you want to, like the bee, find a little crevice, a way into this soft warm place.
