ridged pleasure.

LR

7 "squares" worth of Lizard Ridge.

(Reminder to self: 4 balls of Kureyon = 5.5 "squares.")

I'm loving the garter ridges, really.

Wow, that is going to be amazing when it's done! I love the colourway.

Dave said...

Absolutely beautiful! And wow, you did that quickly. Are you turning it for the short rows, or are you knitting back backwards, or forwards from the other side ... ummm, without turning it?

Note to self: Resist gorgeous new projects involving lizards and ridges.

Wow! Your needles must be smokin', I wish I knit that fast! Looks great too, your grandmother is going to be proud.

I really like your version of the lizard ridge. I tried to comment on the past entry, but blogger wouldn't let me on that day! I was really touched by what you wrote! I can't wait to see the blocked capelet, too!

julia fc said...

Man, I love that pattern. I had only thought of it as a justification to gratify all my Kureyon impulses (I get overcome, you know) but on one colour throughout, it's going to be a stunner.

Stacey said...

That looks great -the garter ridges are a perfect touch!

Coleen said...

that is gorgeous!

Kirsten said...

It's fantastic. I love the way you added the garter ridges. Are you knitting backwards the way she suggests in the pattern? I must admit that scared me off a bit.

April said...

That's going to be one beautiful afghan! I'm loving the garter stitch ridges too.

the kitchener bitch said...

That is extraordinary. I'm amazed you're going to give it up - even to Grandma!

...Now I will spend the next hour looking for Kureyon bargains. I'm inspired.

Vera said...

Lizard Ridge is totally beautiful and will be a wonderful present.

Aija it is beyond words; colour, texture - amazing! Beautiful, just beautiful woman.
