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!
