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.

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.

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. It's actually time to begin the garter stitch border.

And time to begin thinking about the next project.
