OK, I've joined the Leapin' Lizards KAL too.

I really like the new Lizard Ridge afghan on Knitty. I'm looking for a good project for my commute and this looks like a good bet. I forgot that I have one skein of Kureyon, so I can start with that. Now I'll be keeping an eye out for sales. The prices on eBay are no bargain because buyers are really bidding it up to retail and because, IMO, you really have to get lucky to find a bargain on eBay these days. The ads say it's a good felting yarn. Can you avoid felting by washing in cold water?

I bought a new Addi 16" US 1 at Aylin's Woolgatherer today. Now I can finish the Anastasia's in time for Socktoberfest. For you DC dwellers, Aylin's is in Loehman's Plaza. The mall's under construction, but she's still open. Aylin's having a sale until September 30th, by the way. I got some Manos del Uruguay on sale there to make My So Called Scarf. Got a few rows of it done while sitting in traffic today:

I started the Grey's Jaywalkers Thursday night. See?

Got a lot of work done on it. At this rate, I'll get to the STRs soon.

I'm going to have to allocate projects to days of the week. Grey's Jaywalkers on Thursday night, Orangina, Anastasia, and Broadripple every other night, Lizard Ridge everyday on the bus and metro, and the Michael Kors Cable Cardi on the weekend. Don't hold me to this schedule!

Good thing none of these KALs have a deadline.

  1. Wow, that's a lot of projects at once. I love that stitch pattern for My So Called Scarf and just bookmarked it. Your color way is beautiful. Your Grey's are fantastic as well.

    If I hear of any sales on Kureyon I'll pass it along.
