One of the really neat things about the internet is that I can now discover all the ways in which my cheerful obsession with insects intersects with the happy obsessions of others.
Today’s example: Knitted insects.
My grandmother tried–HARD–to make me into a proper girl and teach me to knit.
I sucked at it utterly.
So I’m especially amazed and jealous of Hansi’s skills to make amazingly cute mantids.
Perhaps if I had learned on this pattern, rather than focusing on booties and hot pads, I might have learned better…….
For those of you that do knit, there are patterns for sale at Hansi’s Etsy shop.
