Victor Franko and the butterfly

Grace has gone off for her first day at University today. We made the most of her free time the other day by lazing around watching a film. We watched the Dirty Dozen, which we love- and we now (nearly) know all their names.

Whilst watching I made this lovely butterfly- I stuck a pin on the back and it's quite cute as a badge.

The pattern is Lisa's crocheted butterfly. I got a bit confused at first because I didn't realise the butterfly was folded in half at the end, so I kept thinking I had too many stitches. The pattern was spot on - it was me that was wrong. If you follow the pattern it is really easy. I'm going to make more - they would look lovely stuck around the house.

When Eve came home from school she was rather annoyed that we had watched a film without her - so we ended up watching the Dirty Dozen all over again in the evening with her. No matter how many times I watch this film I still shout out and hope that a particular character can manage to avoid getting killed this time.
