Work Description

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: Purple Orange Brown White
