This past week, I cast on yet another knitting project. It’s funny how no matter what is on the needles, I crave something else. I realized that I needed something to knit in the car, a portable project on larger needles (than socks) that didn’t require a lot of attention. Summer is the season of road trips, after all! I wanted to use yarn from my stash, too.
The Lizard Ridge afghan is one that I’ve admired for years – this is the Ravelry link and this is the link to the pattern on Knitty, where it was originally published in 2008. It’s a free pattern. Lizard Ridge is designed to showcase Noro Kureyon, one of my favorite yarns, and does that brilliantly.
Here my first few blocks – this is the colourway 254 from my stash.
I had seven skeins of Kureyon in my stash, but the pattern calls for twenty. I played with mixing and matching, but really, the Kureyon makes the project. I was compelled (alas!) to buy more Kureyon in coordinating colorways. 🙂
What do you think?
