Not a great pic, but this is the finished Mariposa from Knitty. I used purple and black Lion Brand microspun, which is quite a bitch to knit with. It splits like madness, and if you must frog, I highly recommend just torching the whole project. It will likely maintain your sanity better than attempting to get the yarn back on your needle. Plus, it seemed that no matter what blocking method I used, it curled making my straps little tubes that drove me nuts. I'm constantly having to unroll them, but in the end, it turned out pretty damn cute.
