Butterfly Cardi

Ive been working on the Monarch Butterfly Cardigan with a bamboo rayon blend yarn I got for Christmas by Colors to Dye For. My Aunt picked up the yarn for me on a trip to Kentucky. Is super squishy and soft – perfect for a baby sweater. Im not sure who Im knitting this one for yet…if my sister is expecting a girl it will probably go to her. Its the 3 month size, since I only had one skein of the yarn at 225 yards. Im hoping to finish this one up today and get it blocking, I can’t wait to see how pretty the lace bottom is once blocked and finished.

The best part? I have a seller on etsy custom making a set of three monarch butterfly buttons to match the cardi. I cant wait to see them!

About zenren

I am in my mid-thirties, and blissfully married to a guy named Dave with whom I have a 16 year old daughter named Anela, and she is my world. I'm the RN Clinical Nurse Manager of a Transitional Care Unit where I work extremely hard to make my nurses and my patients happy. I knit shawls, and hats, and baby sweaters. I obsessively use Burt's Bees lip balm. I love spending weekends on our little slice of lake in northern Minnesota, and laying in the grass near the bonfire on a cool spring night with the kiddo watching for shooting stars while eating gooey s'mores with sticky fingers. I enjoy wrapping up in over-sized, snuggly warm sweaters in the autumn and going for walks with the smell of fallen leaves and trees blazing with color. I read a lot of self-help books. I frequently do not answer my cell phone. My husband adores me because of my quirks, not in spite of them, and I do my best to appreciate that. Im learning to meditate, and have a weakness for a good cup of tea. My nephew is adorable, and brings me so much joy. I knit to wind down, stay sane, and create beautiful things.
