As an adult, I thought it was the coolest thing ever to learn that moons and phases had names: blue moon, harvest moon, dark moon, snow moon, honey moon... And so these round hoops and eyelet stitches are such a perfect way to explore her beauty.
|Luna #1 (detail)|
I love how the eyelets remind me of moon craters. I'm making moons in all different sizes. This next one is the 'honey moon'.
Now I'm nearly finished the third one. I just had to re-dye some silk to add a bit of orange to them to get closer to the colour of the blood moon.
I just have to add the glowing edge of this one, and then I think I'm on to something subtle again.
