"Butterfly" Part 1

I came across Knitscene at my LYS about a month or so back and I'm already looking forward to the fall issue coming out end of June.There are a lot of projects in the spring issue that I love. To start, I've got "Butterfly" on my needles as we speak. This is my first time working with Bamboo. I'm using Twizé, 100% Bamboo, colorway is called Twown. I like it. The drape is very nice and I think that is what will make or break this project - and of course the finishing work… the instructions ask for some details that I'm a little nervous about. For example, the finishing involves using things like pleats and sewing in elastic to gather the back. I've never done this with knitting before. Hope it turns out! I'll show you when I'm done.

I love this pattern in the mag, but am too nervous to attempt the sewing. Your yarn choice is great!
