Golden Butterfly

Looks as though Michelle had enough left in the tank to for a gold medal finish in this down to the wire cardigan final. Geez, I must be tired I am talking in the third person.

I'd like to thank my family for all there support, without them I wouldn't..hahahaha right who am I kidding, there the first to sabatoge my knitting mojo. Sick kid here, sick kid there, WHAT? you want dinner again tonight, who know these little people ate so much as so often!

Well it seems I did manage to pull it off. I did in fact finish what I set out to do. I don't think I could make it a monthly occurance, needing sleep an all. Here she is in all her golden glory, Knitting Olympic Gold Medalist...

And because I haven't had proper sleep in a few days and I really look the worse for I wear, I am not modeling. It turned out much larger than I expected, because I wanted the body of the cardigan shorter than the original I shortened those pieces by 2 inches, and because I heard of the issue of too long sleeves from others who have knit it, I shortened those 2 inches also and it's still too long, I would hate to have seen how big it would have been if I hadn't altered it. Well I must rest up for the closing ceremonies.

Congratulations to all the other Team Canada members!

Your Butterfly turned out beautiful for sure! And that little medal just belongs on it. I am of the stubby armed variety so I'd probably just have to cut the arm length in half, ha ha.
