  • Project Details


    My September 2019 project is based on photographs taken in my back garden. All of a sudden lots of butterflies arrived on a large shrub with gorgeous purple flowers. There were so many butterflies, that my daughter and I got lots of lovely close photographs. The butterflies visited us for about a week. This is a Tortoise Shell Butterfly.
    From one of the photographs, I made a kaleidoscope of colours & based my colours on the finished image.
    In this piece of knitting, I wanted to show the spots of colour from the butterfly wings & the purple from the flower.
    The colours I used were:

      Fabulous. That's why it's called Butterfly Bush or buddleia (sp?). You have captured the day perfectly.
