Butterfly traces - Fjärilsspår!

Presenting: Recycled Silk Sweater - Butterfly traces - "Fjärilsspår". The spring feeling was overwhelming - and I finished the very summery Buttefly traces. Named by hubby who saw my yellow traces. It is hard to see, but I added a butterfly on the chest. It is snuggly fitting, and feels very cool. (Brr...) In the background you can see - IT SNOWED this past night. It is melting away, but it is chilly. Definitely not the weather for this - which is made for Texas heat ;-) Anyhow, Im pleased with my design, and it was really a quick knit. And - I started with the sleeves! then knitted it circular and added sleves, and then raglan. I still have some yarn left, and thinking shorts would be ok to match, and a headband. O maybe, doing a top..... Anyhow. This is February entry for Sweater a Month KAL. Im catching up (soon)! To finish the continuing story. Bohus is resting. I just realized - My dyslexia played me a trick, instead of 4 extra added I just added 1 extra stich, and I have to rip half of my collar up. We are so not friends today -Mrs Yellow Bohus and I. Sigh. I have not even started frogging. But, that is good. Now Im back to original UFO plan...And yeah, Mary, I missed Orange and Bouton D'Or, but it was Easter - and I assumed it was closed, also I really wanted hubby to have my attention. A factory of yarn. That could have been me going crazy ;-) And Monika, Jaeger Aran is in dark grey almost black. Impossible to shoot a good picture of. But.. we will see when it gets ready!

Fjärilsspårströjan är ljuvlig, otroligt fin. Den är säkert skön att ha på sig. Jag får ge mig till tåls med Aran tröjan då:) GRATTIS till dina studieframgångar!

your green sweater looks so lovely- for summer- but surely- winter will be gone soon!
the Bohus is intriguing. sorry you had to rip back a bit.

Fjärilsspår är urläcker, känn dig stolt! Och vad sexig du är i den, ;) . Sorgligt med din bohus, men sånt händer. :(

You are a prolific knitter!! The bohus will be beautiful, I am sure. Are bohus sweaters recognized for their historic value in Sweden? Or, do non-knitters think you are making a very out-of-style sweater? Your green pullover is lovely, and perfect for chilly Scandinavian summer evenings.
