Personal Knitting Now On Hold

Butterfly dress
Originally uploaded by Strings 'n Things
All my knitting projects are now officially on hold. The yarn and pattern for my special project have arrived and now, I can tell you about it.

I'll be knitting the Butterfly dress for a friend who's getting married in January (in Mexico, no less). This will be her wedding dress.

They yarn, as you can see, is Rowan Kid Silk Haze in the colours called for in the pattern. I think this will be an interesting knit and I'm looking forward to getting it started, but first I'll be spending some time charting the lace ruffle, reviewing all the directings and (gasp) swatching!

Now, where did I put my 3.25 mm dpns? (It also calls for 4.5 and 5 mm needles.)


  1. Can't wait to see your progress!

  2. The dress looks beautiful Ev. Will we eventually see a picture of the Bride in it?
