Edit: I wasn’t very clear in this post about the shape and size of this “beheMOTH” as one commenter called my Scarlet Moth. It’s square and it’s a blanket. It’s 78″ across!
This is Scarlet Moth. It’s Anne Hanson’s Wing of the Moth. I doubled it and it ended up 78 inches square.
Miss Babs Yowza 2,400 yards. I used about 4 1/3 skeins. The colorway is Sandi’s Red. I wish you could feel it. It’s wonderfully soft.
I don’t know why I was on such a quest, but I knit this in 16 days. I have a sore arm to prove it.
Scarlet Moth was a stinker to photograph. It’s actually a true lipstick red.
Thank you to:
~Anne Hanson for her gorgeous Wing of the Moth pattern.
~Miss Babs for her fabulous Yowza yarn. Those 560 yard skeins were wonderful. The color was even and there were no knots.
~Woolgirl. She’s my favorite crack yarn supplier.
~Jared at Brooklyntweed. His Girasole and other worsted blankets have been an inspiration to many. Of course, he would tell you his inspiration was Elizabeth Zimmerman.
~My Hero, for putting up with all the things I didn’t do while I was knitting.
I’ll leave you with a few more photos.
I’m in love!
