Butterfly – A Finished Object

So, it’s my birthday today and we’re off to an early supper at a trendy little tapas place. You know leftovers on your birthday simply won’t cut it. However, first I have to show off my Butterfly out of Noro that is finally done. Well it has been done for a while waiting for me to put on a hook and eye, but you know that just didn’t cut it either. I have a little too much to keep it closed in a way that looked right. So I went through my beautiful pin collection and picked out a butterfly to match.

Here we are…

Mind you I shortened the sleeves and the body all by 2 inches all the way around.

I probably could’ve did 2 more, but really I’m not dissatisfied.

I think I will wear it. I used nearly every bit of yarn I had too getting those stripes to match on the sleeves and then along the front. The back was the easiest.

  • It is BEAUTIFUL Rose! I love the brightness, the collar, the zigzags changing into stripes – gorgeous!
    (I’ve made a “matching stripes” Noro sweater, so I know what goes into that!)

  • Happy Birthday! And Butterfly looks wonderful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it in such a bright color, but it really, really works.

  • Happy belated birthday! Sorry I missed your day, I went to Decatur for Thanksgiving and then brought home some kind of flu bug 🙁

    The sweater is gorgeous and looks great on you! Personally, I like the sleeves being a bit long on it.
