Nightmare on knit street…what could be a knitter’s worst fear? Tineola Bisselliella, the common clothes moth, muncher of wool and stashes. Of course prevention is always best, so be sure that the blighters don’t cross the threshold, and if they appear, act swiftly! If you need a reminder, perhaps this shawl will serve to keep you on your toes. Knit up this pretty shawl with it’s lacey moths and holes and try not to be too aghast!
