Ninth Butterfly Completed

Finally finished crocheting this butterfly for The Butterfly Project. I tried to flatten it under a book overnight, but it's still pretty twisty and turny. Hopefully when I get around to the starching and pinning process for all of these butterflies, this one will straighten out and look better. This one may end up benefitting the most from that process. The yellow loops on the bottom wings especially won't behave.

This one is bigger than most of the others. Eventually I'll take a picture of all of them together to show their relative sizes. I kind of wish I had used different colors for this one as I'm not too thrilled with the blue and yellow together. I probably should have used the green in place of the blue. Too late now, though. This one was a beast to finally get finished. I think I spent as much time sewing and running in ends as I did crocheting it.

This butterfly was crocheted with Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread, size 10, in Delft and size 10 DMC crochet thread in Green and Yellow using a size 6 steel hook and this pattern.
