New species of caterpillar found in the wild

This new species of caterpillar (new in my stash...) is the Speed Demon Sock in colorway Angel from SweetGeorgia yarns. I have wanted one of these for a while, ever since I saw it metamorphosed into socks in some remote blog or other (can't remember where). A recent trip to visit my friend Barbara at The Point NYC, (she teaches there) yielded this terrific acquisition!
Caterpillars need to eat a lot of leaves to grow, so I went to the park and got this little Angel Caterpillar a few leaves. I thought I'll get a variety, since I was not sure what this caterpillar will like...

I like the caterpillar on the top. Great colours. Calm fall colours looks great!

Little caterpillar will metamorphasize -- pupatize? whatever :-) -- into some absolutely lovely socks!!

I found a black swallowtail caterpillar on my parsley last week--I hope it hits pupa mode asap! MORE sock yarn? I'm calling you Pippi!

The SweetGeorgia yarn is delicious; you're gonna love it. I found the dyer's own Angel socks rather captivating. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Oh, I would be very happy if I found caterpillars like that in my garden :-)

Alas it is too cold and wet in my garden now for any kind of caterpillar. I can't wait to see what socks yours metmorphasizes into!

Your pictures are real eye-candies, I especially love the colours of the leaves, green and a hint of red - beautiful (and of course I like the sockyarn, too!)
