Project

Dragonfly

What are you most proud of? I am really pleased with the way the wings turned out. The dragonflies look really realistic. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a quick knit, but I would only do it if you are quite good at knitting on four needles with a few stitches. The fiddliest bit is fitting in the wings, although once you have made a few it does get easier. I used 4ply wool, but I think other thicknesses and textures work and have interesting results. It is very easy to print the wings onto acetate using a photocopier or printer, but do make sure you buy the right type for your printer. I made this mistake once.
