poppy cardigan

progress is slow on this project.. started it in february, i think, and am about to the place to start the steek for the armhole. i think i've spun and dyed enough yarn for a whole nother sweater and there's still more of the dyed fiber waiting to be spun. there's a lot of alpaca and silk and cashmere in this sweater so it should be ultra-soft and warm. not sure when or where i'll need all that warmth... anyway, i love how it looks and feels so far. i've never done the steek thing in a sweater, but i'm feeling brave about cutting into it. it's all about attitude.

and here's todays nature photo. don't know what kind of butterfly it is. anyone know? anyone? bueller?
i've been taking my little olympus camera with me when i go to the garden to water and have my early morning meditation and nature appreciation time. the peace and quietude is lovely and deserving of being noticed and appreciated every day!!

I think it's a swallowtail butterfly. Also, awesome sweater, it is looking absolutely gorgeous!
