That's right, another UFO debunked and moved to the pile of FOs - finished objects. Yep, friends of the cyber world, there is nothing like the smell of wet wool on a misty morning to get the happy thoughts flowing. So delighted am I with this one that before commencing the task, I actually put away (properly) all of the clean dishes, washed the sheets and remembered that wet sheets should go in the dryer and the dryer should be turned on.
That's a whole lot of delight and happiness.
Pattern: Nymphalidea by Melinda VerMeer which is available on Ravelry.
Yarns: Baah La Jolla in black & Louisa Harding Amitola in color 119 which is more appropriately named Embrace.
And might I add, this baby is so long that it is on the floor for the blocking process because the yoga mat that I use for shawl blocking is not long enough, nor is the counter top long enough and so a part of le Papillon extends over to the freshly washed rug, which means that I had to wash and dry the rug yesterday so that it was clean for the blocking AND I am crawling around on the floor planning and pinning and inserting wires and replacing pins and smoothing and stretching wet wool and I stopped to write the blog post and rant about who in their right and sane mind crawls around on the floor with wet wool at 8:20 in the morning!
And that, gentle reader, is the truth behind my yarn obsession.
