Does anyone have any hints as to how to make purling through the back loop easier. I just can't do it for some reason especially using KSH......

Thanks

I didn't do it, I just did P2tog instead.  It doesn't really make any difference, at least not that I can see.

Okay, my mother's birthday is at the end of the month and she's been making noise about me not yet knitting anything big for her, so I'd like to make her a Butterfly.



I just need help picking the colour(s).



Because she's very much a classic redhead I was thinking one of the more orangey colours. I have a full 800 yards of the lighter 2 and closer to 400 of the brown, which is probably still enough for a Butterfly.

Solid? Or with a different colour trim?


And what colour beads? I used pink for the last one I made, which was brown, but pink is not so much a colour my mother wears.

I say dark brown, with a lighter brown trim.

I have some nice turquoise glass seed beads that may go with this:

I think I actually have some beads that are that exact colour.

Hmmm....blue looks like crap on my mother, but I have plans to make another Butterfly for my sister, who is also a redhead but more of a "spring" than an "autumn," and your colour scheme would work perfectly.

sorry I couldn't help...

I just want to mention that I love that you are making this for your mom- what a labour of love! I am sure she will love it, and it will make her feel sexy, which us adult "kids" don't get to make our moms feel v. often- unfortunately its usually the opposite Tongue

I'm trying out the peach as the main colour with a double frill of peach on top of orange, orange beads, and orange for the picot edging. Not sure about the straps yet. I tried double-stranding the two colours but it produced this odd stripey effect that I didn't really like, so hopefully the layered effect will be subtle enough while still making things interesting. Besides, I wanted an excuse to try that double frill.  Grin

Ah, I wish I had or could find a cheap copy of this book! Rowan mags are so expensive, especially when you only want the one pattern.
