WIP - Pogona
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 when I discovered that a moth had been merrily feasting away on the cowl.

I 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 ; wound into one large cake, splicing the cut (eaten) ends using Lori's Invisible Braided Join.
