A bearded birthday swap

Tonight at Purl Jam, we had another 2016 birthday swap!  A little background for this particular post: our knitting group isn’t that big, and I think it’s fair to say that we know each other pretty well (tastes, preferences, pets, etc), and many times the pairing of the knitted gift and the recipient is just spot on.  Tonight was such a case.

Janice knitted this beautiful shawlette that not only resembles the bear of Andrea’s bearded dragon pet, but she managed to find a color way of Madeleine Tosh that matches her as well!

The pattern is Dragonfire/Drachenfeur.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/drachenfeuer—dragonfire

Janice chose a light shawlette because Andrea runs warm, unlike some of us cold-blooded knitters who always need sweaters!

According to Janice, “they loved it when I walked into Imagiknit and said I needed yarn the color of a bearded dragon.”

Herc looks comfy here.
