Mothproof

 Mothproof. That's exactly what it said on the ball band. I never heard of such a thing before and it made my brows go up a little. I obviously never thought
of running a lab test to see whether it's actually moth proof or not. If you think about it it's a big claim to make, but who would be crazy enough to check, right? There would be all sorts of trick decisions to make like: how far should you place the moth from that ball? should you wrap it in plastic first (the wool, not the moth)? should you hide all your other yarn? and what if you have an infestation afterwards? There is no way a sane person would bring a moth into the house. And so we are left to trust the ball band - moth proof it is.

Anyhow, I am thrilled about having contributed yet another pattern to Interweave. It was out earlier this month in their Fall issue and was fun to work on. It's a classic fitted raglan style that works up seamlessly from the bottom up with a little twist. It was an interesting challenge to design a collar that's shaped and finished differently on left and right sides and I am hoping to whip up one for myself before this winter ends.
