Works In Progress

Lizard Ridge Crochet - Noro Kureyon Yarn
Now that the holidays are over, I'm finally able to get back to a few WIPs (works in progress) I have hangin' around. I started a crocheted version of the faboo Lizard Ridge Afghan that I read about on knitty.com. Lots of people are making the knitted version. Knitting the blocks was just too slow for me, so I received a clue from A Mano's Shannita about this wavy crochet pattern. I modified it to look more like the knitted pattern and started crocheting! I purchased some sale Noro Kureyon online in 3 different shades. I'm crocheting the afghan in one piece, since the color changes in this yarn are long. I just love how the pattern looks. For my next attempt at this stitch I may just use 3 colors: 2 different colors for the waves and one color for the single crochet-outline row. It's intoxicating.


While I was thinning my yarn stash last week I noticed that I had a large amount of thin Lionbrand Chenille yarn. Since my boss's granny afghan turned out so beautifully, I decided to make a granny chenille afghan using up all of that yarn. When I get tired of crocheting Lizard Ridges, I switch over to granny squares.
Granny Squares - Lion Brand Chenille Yarn

Of course, I have a few more WIPs hangin' around, but that will be for another post!

just love how you put your colors together. I can never do anything that calls for mixing/matching. Call me monochromatic. Or don't, b/c that sounds mean.

Love both the LR and the chenille grannies.

I was hoping for a pic of the LR afghan. I didn't know you were crocheting it. It's beautiful!

Thanks for the comments, Goils!
Hey Monkeygurrl....I didn't put the colors together for the Lizard Ridge afghan. Noro put the colors together. Noro is brilliant!
