So many of you com-
mented on the moth traps that I am making them the subject of this post. Mim suggested I get them a few years ago when I was having so much trouble. She has all her flock sheared every spring and has a whole lot more wool to protect and experience than I.
Originally I purchased clothes moth traps online and you can see them here, but they were pretty pricey and Mim insisted the pantry traps work for her. The only place I've found them locally is at Winco and they're in the same area as moth balls and insect repellent.
The actual trap is on the left side of the photo. It's completely open and the inside surface is sticky like fly paper. You drop a little chip onto the sticky surface and then place the trap in an open area. They say the moths will find the trap when it's placed within 10 feet of the infested source. They make no claims for wool moths but in my experience it does trap them just the same.
I've finished and steeked the yarn bomb. This is my first steek and I think in the future I won't knit bombs in the round. The cut edges look pretty raw. I'm working on a couple of embellishments and hope to get it installed in the next couple of days in time for Valentines Day!
