Moth is not a four-letter word for this UK knitter!

Moth is not a four-letter word for this UK knitter!

Max Alexander‘s knitted moths are incredible – I am simply blown away. LOVE! I also like the irony of using wool to knit moths – normally that combination strikes fear into the heart of every knitter/crocheter I know! Now there are many reasons for this, for starters moths are just creepy and I hope that no one has to experience a moth infestation. However, if you are unlucky like that then don’t worry, you can simply call up someone like Kansas City Pest Control. It’s not actual moths that are scary, but also knitting a moth is hard. However, after looking at the pictures below then hopefully you’ll see what a good job Max Alexander has done.

    Fantastic! The biologist in me also wants to point out that no moth eats wool – a few caterpillars do, but not of the moths shown here, so enjoy them without feeling conflicted. I so wish I had thought of this first!
