Actually, it is seemed too but I really liked the a lliteration of the title so I am pretending that is as far as I got. I finally found those pesky bead needles and got to work on the second panel, finishing much faster then the first one took me. This pattern really goes quickly once you get the hang of it. And it is so…beautiful. I love it.
Here is a so-so picture of my baby on the blocking board:
Now on to the Picot edging which I hope isn’t too hard. One thing I am mystified about is how little Kidsilk Haze I needed. I have really only gone through about 1 and a half skeins where the pattern called for three balls. I made size M and even made it a little longer then the pattern called for�??as I am a tall girl. So the leftover ball will be added to the stash I guess
Speaking of the stash, I went through mine this week and was surprised at how much I have accumulated in the year I have been knitting.
Some of my stash:
These are deep containers filled with yarn. When did I buy all this yarn?! It is crazy, I am crazy. Strange to think that a year ago I was struggling to make an even swatch. Strange but cool.
Tonight, my sister threw a knitting party for some of her co-workers. Here is the fall knitting decor:
So fun. I have done some more work on the Clapotis but I put it aside to finish Butterfly. I am really glad I stuck with the Koigu. I will post progress pictures soon (along with final pictures of Butterfly.) I need to get a picture outside so you can get a good look at the colors. The lighting inside doesn’t give it justice. Once these two projects are off the needles I am going to finish Paula and then I am not sure what I will embark on. What I really want to make is a lace scarf but I am not sure what pattern I want to use. Suggestions are always welcome.

Butterfly looks amazing. i’ve been eyeing that pattern, but i just recently found out the KSH itches me! *sob*
Wow! Your sister must be so cool…
I saw somewhere, on a blog, I can’t remember which one someone made a beautiful lace scarf out of the Butterfly pattern! You could do that…if you’re not too sick of it. Your Butterly looks gorgeous on you!
Oh…and Happy Birthday!
Congrats Erin. It looks so fab! Kara just showed me your blog and I have to admit I’m smitten. You galz are so sickening sweet. From the Butterfly to the awesome cake.
I turn 30 in April. Can you knit me a butterfly?
