I have 2 friends (Anne and Denise) who like butterflies and a sister who does too.
But i think the main reason was because my Nan taught me to knit and crochet and also passed on her love for variegated wool! I wanted a pattern to show off the variegated wool.....hopefully others will come to love it as much as me. I was asked a couple of times for the pattern, so had to sit and actually write one, then i re-wrote it a few times again! I would really, really like to thank the ever-patient Pam, AKA the founder of K4C (knit 4 Charities) for assisting me in making it user friendly.
I think that if she had a dollar for every email we have exchanged, she might be VERY rich!
Anyway this pattern has been gifted to K4C & Kerry from www.busyhandswarmhearts.bravehost.com
this picture shows a slight variation of the final pattern
