In case you missed it today, the David Suzuki Foundation invited me to create some chrysalises for their #knit4monarchs campaign. I happily knitted up these five fabulous wee changing rooms for caterpillars:
In a realistic green tone, and incidentally made from yarn I’ve had in my possession since I was about 9 or 10. Good way to use it up finally, methinks!
A subtle, more classic and classy version in a mercerized cotton champagne tone. For the discerning larva.
A little Americana in the house, with this festive red, white and blue option.
The monarch butterfly travels through all of North America and well, this was easier to freestyle than attempting to knit a Canadian maple leaf motif. Also, I ran out of green before having the option to even consider Mexico.
Because it’s ALWAYS worth seeing how far over the top one can go. in this case, with sea foam mohair and sequins. BAM!
And finally my all-the-colors-of-the-rainbow chrysalis, because fun. Because FUN, people.
I had a lot of fun, thanks, David Suzuki Foundation!
P.S. April Fools’! xo
