If nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies…



I’ve finished my holiday project! It was Butterfly from Rowan 37. I finished the knitting on holiday but then couldn’t seem to find the time to finish it off. But now I have and I’m so pleased. It's such a nice top, pretty, floaty, delicate and frivolous. I loved knitting this for the following reasons:

1. It used kid silk haze and beads (always a good combination!)

2. It was incredibly quick to knit

3. It was easy enough to be done in the car etc but still involved enough complications to keep it fun
and best of all…



4. It only took just over one ball of KSH to knit. Honestly I’ve just weighed my second ball and there was 16g out of the 25g left. Plus I got the yarn free from Rowan last time I joined so it was even more of a bargain.
I would definitely knit this pattern again. In fact I probably will, probably in green or grey.







Note also the new skirt I bought in the Monsoon sale today! I had to queue for a very long time but it was half price…

That is really lovely. Amazing you can get a whole top from just over one ball of KSH!

What can I say? That is just stunning - I love it. I have to agree with Annarella.

And Monsoon clothes are always worth the wait in the queue, aren't they! Especially at half price.

What a lovely garment.
And I loved your holiday posting too - west Wales is so beautiful and the coastal path is the best. I've bookmarked your cottage place. It has always rained when I've been in Fishguard, but now I know where to go for shelter!

Wow - Butterfly is absolutely gorgeous! I shall have to look that one up - especially if it is so economical with the KSH. Fantastic knit.
