Oh, I love it that you found this. How funny. I think if I hadn't seen them together I would have been a little confused about the butterfly pattern. It's not really 2004, is it? But it *sure* is 1972. Hilarious!

I would totally place the color picture in the 80s, myself, especially considering that Rowan (Classy, British Rowan!) uses shimmer yarn in theirs. And what up with the models? And the use of the same ribbing, for heaven's sake?

Yes, high-larious.

Wow. Does that count as copyright infringement? Who'd have thought such a thing of Rowan?

NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN! I love both of them, whether 70's or 2000's.

That's awfully nervy of Rowan, isn't it?? I have a hard time looking at either of them and seeing butterflies - it took me a while. Instead I see rows of diamond shapes, the negative space between the butterflies.

Busted! Cool update, though. At least I think so....
