Butterfly sweater finished

Enough posts about books - let's have something about knitting.

Fineshed the butterfly sweater (Let's Knit Series 11 - cover pattern). This was weeks ago just that I've got a new and huge project at work, which is draining all my energies at the moment, so I've got everything else, including blogs, on a very slow burner.





The stitch pattern is really simple - the only thing which was a challenge was the crochet adventure and I absolutely loved it. I bought the Clear and simple Crochet guide and this was a perfect start.

We had a mini KAL on ravelry - I've always regarded KALs as a waste of time -well, I have to admit I was wrong, as I really enjoyed knitting with a pal.

Hi, the sweater is truly gorgeous. How can I get my hands on the book Let's Knit Series 11? The Needle Arts Bookstore doesn't have any, and I can't quite navigate the Japanese Amazon site. You can email me at alhgray@mac.com.
Thanks,
Anne

Where is the Ravelry Group? I've been hunting, and can't find it.

I've started this beautiful sweater, and still have one sleeve to knit. It takes forever this pattern. At the end, I don't like that much and am in a hurry to finish as quickly as possible.

I came here from the rainey sisters blog. Gorgeous stitch-work in that sweater! The crochet goes well with the knitting here.
