Notes

Watched the Yarn Harlot’s trials and tribulations with this pattern and thought good for her but not a project for me. Then, while at Madrona, I met the lovely Pamela who is hosting a KAL for the project. I drug my heels, not wanting to fall down the rabbit hole but…

Thanks to Suzie for sending the butterfly picture for color inspiration and to Pamela for her computer skills in figuring out how the order of colors should go.

3/1/15 practicing stacked increases. Not a good idea to watch video in the morning and assume you can do it in the afternoon! See third to last try as an example of stacked increases gone horribly wrong. The last two came out fine after deciding it would behoove me to re watch the technique.

4/22 tried hard to finish for VKL but didn’t make it. Got it done before the headline though.
