Beautiful Birthday Butterfly - WIP


Well, as usual, I was not able to finish
a birthday present on time.
This one is for my Precious Mommy.

But...

I'M GETTING SOOOOO CLOSE!


Just one more piece of wing left.

Her favorite color is red.
So I'm using red for the wing accent
with a white/gold variegated combo.


It's turning out quite nicely!
TONS of ends to tuck in, 
but I'm almost done with 
that part as well!!!

I got the free pattern off of Ravelry.

Working with the 2 colors is somewhat
tedious because you have to switch and tie off
FREQUENTLY.

But I think the outcome will be worth it!

Especially since it is for my Mom and
she's VERY worth ANY amount of trouble!

  1. Oh, a very beautiful butterfly, this one! Will be surely very appreciated.
    Thanks for the link to Ravelry, for I will copy the pattern too for some future butterfly myself, I believe.

  3. Lia, thank you and you're welcome!

    Dee, thanks for stopping by! Hope I 'see' you around here again. I wouldn't have thought of the colors either if I hadn't been seeing SO many people using color on Ravelry. Plus, I really wanted to have some red for my Mom.
