Here are a few sites with information about butterflies and their host plants. Plants and butterfly species will vary by geographic region so you might want to do your own search.

Crochet Thread #10 is great for lifelines! Anchor by tying a stitch marker on each end.
Franklin's Harem need names.
Leave a message here or on the Ravelry Board if you are interested in the skeins of laceweight wool from Old Maiden Aunt
in West Kilbride, Scotland. I will leave this open for 2 weeks to give everyone a chance to enter the drawing. List your color preferences.
- Moody (blue)
- Bracken (light green)
- Rose (This one is already wound into a ball)
Glad you found the lifeline tips useful! I like the size 30 crochet thread for lace and the size 10 for larger yarns and they work great when you need to rip back which I did a couple of times on Brandywine. Thanks for not telling your listeners what a goof I am that I ran the lifeline threw the stitch markers (a no-no) not once but twice!
I was just going to recommend Electric Sheep to you! Isn't she great. I too am listening to her older podcasts
All 3 colors are beautiful.
I'm enjoying your podcast and thanks for the giveaway. I really love the Moody colorway, but would be very happy with any of these colors - I can always find a home for knitted lace.
I really like your podcast. I enjoyed the links to the butterfly sites. I have a naturalized garden, and it looks kinda sad right now. I do have indigenous trees and shrubs that I am happy to see are host species. I listen while I am spinning, and I always have to stop and look at the show notes.
Your podcast is very sweet, and pleasant to listen to. Thanks for the drawing - Bracken or Moody would be my choice.
I've just discovered your podcast via Old Maiden Aunt on Ravelry. I'm glad to check it out! As for the draw, I'd say 1st Rose, 2nd Moody, 3rd Bracken, but they are all beautiful. Thanks for thinking of us OMA fans and all the best for the podcasts. x K
I've just discovered your podcast as well, via Ravelry, and will try and keep up with it whenever possible :-) I would love to go in for your draw and I adore all the colourways so not fussed here at all.
I'm loving your podcast, and am thrilled about such an excellent giveaway! My youngest's middle name is Rose (after my grandmother), so I would choose that color first. Moody describes my oldest daughter (whee!), so that would be my second choice. Ah, but the Bracken is beautiful as well... All so lovely!
Another interesting episode. I've never been to my high school reunion. I don't even know if they have had one! What about Teresa (meaning harvester) and Tilly (strength in battle) for the turkeys?
I'd like to enter the contest if you are willing to send overseas. 1) Moody 2) Bracken and 3) Rose
Yes, I will definitely send overseas if one of you win! Thanks for all the kind remarks and your interest in the podcast--and the giveaways!
another great podcast, Paula. I LOVE what your husband said at your hs reunion. That's so sweet and it's so sweet and wonderful that he's so proud of your talent. I love hearing about your butterflies. I envy you for being able to grow such pretty gardens. The sun is just too hot here in the desert. I agree that perseverance is much more important than talent. You have great thoughts on that topic. Happy knitting and piping!
Paula, another great podcast. I seem to be running a bit behind, but that's OK. Again I listened while walking, so the topic of perseverance was quite timely as I had to really stick with it in this awful heat we are having. I'm having to persevere on my Citron, too. It has not been my most favorite project.
I love your podcast though do need to catch up on the last two due to MP3 player issues. Lots of Scotsmen in my heritage but no one close plays the pipes. Your give-away yarn looks very pretty, Moody or Rose are my favorites. Thanks, Linda
Just found you through your post to the Ravelry podcasting board, and looking forward to listening to the cast.
The yarn giveaway looks wonderful. I particularly love the blue, but the others are both great colors.
Since there are any romantic sparks flying around,I'd like to suggest Kite and Key for Franklin's ladyfriends' names. My preferences would be Moody, Bracken then Rose. Thanks for the giveaway.
Hi I came here via Ravelry (HLK), the OMA yarns look beautiful so there will be three very happy people soon. Love the podcast.
My prefernce would be , well anything.. but if I had to chose then Bracken, Rose and Moody.
Good luck with the podcasts.
I found you via The Knitting Show podcast and just caught up with all of your episodes.
I love the Bracken colorway with Moody being a close second.
I'm so glad I found your podcast!
As I write this I am sitting in my backyard watching the birds at the feeder, knitting a shawl and listening to your podcast. How wonderful. So glad I found your podcast. I would love the color, Moody, thanks for sharing.
