Where to start?

This beauty and several of her friends (actually many of her friends) were hanging about my garden yesterday. Dear Son Number Two decided that he had to have pictures of them, and several very blurry pictures later finally got this one. He was very impressed with the number of butterflies and how the click of the camera taking the picture made them take flight.

But what do I have to show you?

I thought about this :

And then I remembered, I can't tell you about that one yet.

How's about this?
Oops, can't talk about that one either!

Maybe this?
Or this?
Nope, those are stealthy too.

I guess we will have to settle for (hah! Like this is settling for anything!) this :

Presenting the Summer Swatch Me Sampler Stole, being modeled by the newer, moodier Drama Queen!

Pattern : Summer Swatch Me Sampler from Bad Cat Designs, presented pattern by pattern in a Yahoo Group.
Yarn : Jade Sapphire 2 ply Cashmere in Burnt Toast
Size 4(US) needles
Notes: I knit this one along with the group, along with some of the side projects. On many it was really fascinating to see how adding or subtracting a stitch, mirroring a motif or changing the background to garter stitch could give such a different look to the same basic design element.

Next up? Swatching for the ColourMart Contest, and maybe even finishing up a stealth project or two!

Teasing again! Love your sampler. Mine is done too but still need to photograph it plus I don't have a handy model! Gorgeous sunflower and butterfly.

Lovely, absolutely lovely - still have the last pattern and edging to do on mine - soon I hope. Can't wait to see what these stealth projects are - you tease!
