milk moth neverland

the most pale.

when you see your very own lace
in your very own waiting window,
you know that a cup of tea in
your very own fluffy chair
is just around the corner.

i am staying up late tonight and working
on a sweater that i have been knitting
for quite some time. size 3 needles
are the essence of slowness.

I can't believe you have posted this white moth.:)
I have just painted one of these magical moths with you in the illustration!!!
Did you know they are fairies in disguise, with feather wings!;)
You must do a post about the jumper when it is finished.

Karolina said...

good luck with the sweater! I'm slowly learning different patterns, and now understand the satisfacion when something is done- without holes in it! :)

Knitting small is sooo time-consuming, but it makes everything so much more delicate. Can't wait to see the finished masterpiece!

!!! oh! its magic! is it really in the illustration?
its so funny.. i posted it because when
we were in corsica there were white
moths EVERYWHERE at least 20
on the windows.. little tiny ones.
they were so sweet i became
quite obsessed with them.
i call them milk moths
and they dont mind
too much... ♥

Milk moth sounds beautiful like a fantasy novel. Thank you for your comment Mouse. I will post the full story of the dolpin soon and will let you know when it is up. I believed that you did swim with Johnny Depp! Your life seems so magical it all seemed possible. You would have been a beautiful mermaid next to his pirate self.xx
ps I am sure the dolphins are watching you...

joanne May said...

It is kind of spooky about the moths!
Just to give you a little idea about the picture. You are also wearing a white moth wing hat, in the painting!!
Have a lovely week.;)

Sara said...

a mouse said...

blog.. but im superstitious about posting
things before they are finished because

the hard way.. heh heh heh

Oh this picture is beautiful. Never saw such an extraordinary moth (is it a moth?).
I try to learn knitting at the moment. Could you give me an expert tip? What's best to knit if you just started knitting? A cap?
By the way I love your knitting blog!

um.. i think.. a hat is a very good project.
even a basic boxy sweater/jumper is ok
as long as the pattern is not too
complicated... if you find a
free pattern online.. they
are usually pretty basic..
happy knitting ♥

PinkBow said...

i hope you will show us when finished?

a mouse said...

definitely ! :)
