Clever spider spins a thread
To make a trap we call a web.
Clever spider knows that she
Will have some insect with her tea.
I made this for a contest in Raverly. The pattern is from Lisa Gentry of Hook and Needle Designs. Her patterns are easy and quick.
I decided to make this spider do what I love to do and that is crochet. Personally I do believe that is how spiders make their webs. 😀
Then to add a special touch, I made her into a Black Widow. Here she is checking out the back of her web. It has to be perfect, you know.
About Black Widow Spiders, they get to be bout 1.5 inches long. The female is usually black with a red hour glass on her belly, and the male has red streaks on his belly. The female will lay up to 900 eggs; however, only about 30 will survive to adulthood. The females hang belly up and rarely leave the web. On occasions, she has been known to eat the male.
I’ll probably hang her from my desk. I just hope Albert doesn’t get her.
