I'm a bit of an Arachnophile - have to admire such wonderfully fine spinning :-)
This lovely and rather large St Andrew's Cross spider has taken up residence in a corner of our garden.
She has had (probably in more than one sense of the word!) at least one admirer - the poor wee male is so much smaller than she is! She was even more rotund for a while, then she disappeared for a few days and when she came back she was least 1 dress size smaller - wonder where she left those eggs! She has lovely yellow stripes on her belly and bright yellow knees. Today she has woven a magnificent X in her web but some days she gets a bit lazy and leaves off an arm or two of her cross.
Finished this micro-cardi a while ago but only got the buttons for it this week.
It is in Collinette yarns, Iona and Giotto, both in the "Bilberry" colour - a magnificent strong blueish purple. My own pattern and this knit is for ME :-)
