a reptile also known as the bearded dragon.

In this case the name of this pattern. The pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn, I am knitting it in a Mountain Colors worsted weight yarn.

I purchased the yarn in 2005, knit a cowl and had quite a bit leftover. I hadn't worn the cowl in years and planned on frogging it to recycle the yarn, using it to make this shawl longer. Imagine my surprise :zombie: when I discovered that a moth had been merrily feasting away on the cowl.

I :frog: the cowl, using my swift to wind the yarn into hanks, knotting it in the places where it was eaten away. Microwaved and frozen, twice, I am certain that all moths have ascended to their happy place :angelgrin:; wound into one large cake, splicing the cut (eaten) ends using Lori's Invisible Braided Join.

This is such a nice shawl, cozy looking, makes me want to wrap up in it. :) Moths should learn not to mess with your yarn!

Beautiful colors, Claire and a lovely shawl. I love the way Mountain Colors yarns knit up.

Man, that is too bad, but I guess they learned a lesson from you not to mess with your projects!!! Hope it all works out ok to make the shawl.

Love the colours and the shawl is looking great - well done and I'm sure it will be a real joy to wear.

When the yarn was joined to the project, the cake weighed 158 grams.

The cake now weighs in at 85 grams; 73 grams were used for 9 1/2 rows, adding about 1 1/2 inches in length.

Must be over 600 stitches per row by now, increasing by 14 stitches for every second row. :whoosh: It's actually time to begin the garter stitch border.

And time to begin thinking about the next project.
