I’ve just completed my first moth of 2016. I started it last November but then Christmas jewellery orders went a little crazy and I had no time for mothing.
It feels great to be knitting moths again and I wanted to share some photos of this one in progress. It’s the Merveille du Jour Moth (Griposia aprilina). It’s common across Britain in September and October. It has a wingspan of around 4-5cm but mine is closer to 25cm!
I started off with my pencils and graph paper and got stuck in.
Progress is made with 2.25mm knitting needles and Shetland wool
I love stitching the eyes on.
The finished moth!
