I have crossed the line and am running amok.
I was handling myself well, maintaining my self-restraint (all the while collecting yarn for new projects). Only after finishing one, would I allow myself to cast on for the next. How else will I finish if I spread myself too thin in the project department. This was all well and good until my sister asked for my help.
She sent me a picture of yarns she bought at Rhinebeck with a message asking if I knew what patterns she was using for them. This is a fair question, I take notes and since this is my "thing" I tend to have better recall.
Our conversation went something like this...
This was the "sexy gradient" named Edge of Temptation. The names of the colors from left to right are: Temptation, Provocation, Persuasion, Devotion, Passion, Obsession, Seduction. We had a lively debate with our friend, Jennifer, on whether we agreed with their order. But I digress....
I found the patterns she was looking for by looking at her favorites. I figured it would trigger my memory. It did and I was able to solve the mystery.
However, one pattern leads to another, and while I was looking through her favorites, I came upon Butterfly/Papillion. I was gobsmacked.

I was captivated by the pattern picture.
It should come as no surprise that not only have I downloaded the pattern, I have purchased the yarn. The project requires fingering weight yarn: one skein of a contrast and 4 skeins of Milli Colori Baby (or equivalents).
I'm still committed to finishing my holiday gifts first. As these are all secret squirrelly projects I have cast on for two projects I can knit around the family that will not arouse curiosity or suspicion.

However, it gives me joy thinking of this butterfly in my queue, like a chrysalis waiting to open.
