National Moth Week

National Moth Week From the 18th-26th July 2015 it’s National Moth Week.
“National Moth Week celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths. “Moth-ers” of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn about, observe, and document moths in their backyards, parks, and neighborhoods. National Moth Week is being held, worldwide, during the last full week of July. National Moth Week offers everyone, everywhere a unique opportunity to become a Citizen Scientist and contribute scientific data about moths.”

Io Moth close upAs you can imagine I’m quite excited about all this moth activity. Having only discovered the beauty of moths last year there’s still so much more to learn. The list of moths that I’m planning to knit is getting quite daunting…! So I’ve decided to knit as many as I can for moth week. As the NMW logo features an Io Moth I’m working on one of those now. Here’s a sneaky close up of it’s eyespot.

I’ve added a page of Moths where you can see all the one’s I’ve completed so far.

Here are all the Events taking place during National Moth week if you want to get involved too.
