Mothy Goodness

I think I like alternating big/complex knitting projects which quick/simple ones. After finishing my very first sweater at the beginning of the month (and I totally love it - I wore it 4 days last week!), I felt the need for something a bit less involved.

So I knit a moth.

Lavender-Filled Knitted Moth
Knit Moth

He's filled with lavender and his purpose in life is to help keep my yarn moth-free. Well, not completely moth-free. But rather to keep the moth population to one.

Stash Moth

I think he looks happy there.

As an aside, when I was young (eight-ish or so) a moth got into the house and managed to fly down my nightgown. Much unhappy squealing commenced. I'm still a little freaked out by moths at night. And yet I knit this. Which kind of makes him even more ridiculous but that's kind of why I like him.

Next up: socks!


  1. you take requests for the lavender moths? :-) That's a great idea!

    1. Hahaha! I'm not sure - he's a lot bigger than you'd think (larger than my hand) so a smaller lavender sachet might be more what you'd want!
