The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Do you remember the story about the very hungry caterpillar?  I read it to my niece yesterday.  The colors in the book reminded me of the colors in the shawl I'm working on.  Did I ever mention I was a third grade teacher?  I think that is one of the reasons I love old children's books so much.

The caterpillar wakes up to the warm sun and eats his way right through the whole book.  He has a little taste of everything.  The next day he makes a cocoon... and becomes...

A beautiful butterfly.  Isn't that how it goes (when we are lucky) with knitting.  You take those balls of yarn, follow your pattern, knit, knit, knit and you might just end up with something beautiful.

The pattern is Stipes of Betsy by Amanda Rios.  You can buy it on Ravelry.  It was amazingly written and sooooo much fun to knit.  I finished it in the blazing sun at a soccer game.  Can't wait to cozy up to it when it is cold.

While I'm on the subject of caterpillars... check out this cute stuff.

What mom of a one year old has time for this?!

This cake couldn't be cuter...  Have a happy day everyone!
