Flutterings

I took the opportutnity to take pics last weekend while snapping some samples. Life is still hectic. I'm still wishing for a long break which would be hard to come by right now. Anyways,



That's my butterfly progress. Not much huh? I have another 4 to 5 repeats before I'm done. My knitting and sewing is really plodding right now. Good news is, I found the right shade for the shift I'm going to make for butterfly to wear under. Yep, butterfly is lying right on top of it. It's a warm dark chocolately wine color. That's the way I can best describe it. Do you think it goes well?

I got a nice fushcia pink lining to go with my bamboo bag. But yep, no time yet. I'm also plodding with minisweater until last night. I had to frog it completely to restart. That's what you get when you are too tired to pay attention to your knits at 12 midnight.

I'm leaving you with these wandering soap dispensers. They do look like they are looking about their surroundings. My favourite pair of tourists, recently arrived..:)

When I saw them, I knew I just have to get them. I find the overall packing really unique and appealing. The sheep, which reminds me of wool and knitting and a cheerful translucent minty green colored mint flavored hand soap! Pretty unique my part of the world. Well, don't look at me like that! I know the soap in the dispenser is white. Well...:) you didn't think that the mint flavored soap would stay in there forever right? For some reason after getting it, my bathroom seems to be a favourite whenever anyone needed to wash their hands. I had to refill with whatever else I have now until I get more the next time. There's other cutesy in this range too.

PS I know my blog is having some technical issues. My bloglines subscription list has disappeared too. Bear with me yea, I haven't have the time or energy to deal with codes right now.

i think the slip will look fabulous! and your sheepies are so cute. i'm not suprised its all disapearing, i love mint.
i had problems with the minisweater too... thought it was knit bottom up instead of top down... felt SO dumb when i realised. the collar is still a bit stretched from when i was trying to make it fit under my bust :p
cant wait to see your bags new lining :)

oooh, butterfly is so pretty, and the pattern is so clear without the KSH fuzz. Can't wait to see it finished!

Butterfly will look so good against that dress. What yarn are you using?

Your Butterfly is looking gorgeous already, I'll wait patiently to see the end result, you take your time with things, Laura, and don't get stressed out!

Again, my dear, what is a shift? Your butterfly looks promising though ;)
And yeah, I love those soaps too!

Butterfly is looking great! I hope to be right behind you. I'm going to use some lace weight alpaca. I'm not big on mohair.

Mimi said...

Oh! I love laces, and with your yarn i can finally see clearly the pattern behind this famous Butterfly. I am sure it will look beautiful. I love mint, my shampoo has mint and is so refreshing. I also go for "minty" hair treatments. haha , It's funny that I just thought that I like mint tea too. The weather is getting cooler around here, so I guess I 'll need a break from this herb! Haven't seen mint soap, I am sure it gives a refreshing feeling in your hands.

love your butterfly! you'll look so great when you flutter by in it!

it will look very classic against the chocolate wine color. I can also see it combining well with almost any solid saturated hue.
