Well, the baby shower is under way, so I can now post the secret project in its entirety...
This is the picture my niece posted on Facebook, of the bedding for her baby-to-be.
The theme I went for: Butterflies, pink and purple. The result:
I would say that the last picture represents the colors most realistically. I love a good pattern that looks harder than it actually is. This was really fun to knit and watch the butterflies appear.
Stats: Pattern is "Flutterby", a freebie on Ravelry. Yarn is Plymouth Encore.
