My new work in progress: Drachenfels, designed by Melanie Berg.
I am making mine from Madelinetosh Pashmina.
I have finished all use of Color A, the “Black Walnut,” and that’s a good thing — this is how much of it I have left!
The pattern says it uses 333 yards of Color A, and my yarn is 360 yards per skein, so the amount needed is pretty much spot on!
I am using the needle size recommended in the pattern, a U.S. size 6, to get gauge, and it is a little looser than I usually do for this yarn, but I am loving the resulting fabric — soft and drapey.
I estimate I am perhaps halfway through this project — lots of knitting fun remains!
Loki thinks it is fun to hang out in my knitting bag.
