The butterfly fairy tale

A long time ago in a land far far away, a butterfly shawl was started. For a while, it held the girl’s attention – oh look at the beautiful colours…



Then other shiny new things yelled to be cast on, so it sat waiting not so patiently for its turn in the rotation. When the girl would walk by, it would clear its throat and say “ahem – can I get a little love over here?“. But the girl ignored it and instead focused on soft merino, cashmere and qiviut. For you see, this shawl was out of Kauni. And while Kauni is beautiful to look at, it could use some personality modification.

Eventually the girl decided to go through the abandoned projects and found that this one was very close to being done. So she gathered it up, talked to it for a few days and decided that yes indeed it was worth of some love.

And they lived happily ever after.
