Lizard Ridge in Poems

We have a new yarn called Poems that's a lovely worsted weight self-striping yarn with wonderful colors. I sent out an email announcement and sale notice and a wonderful customer shared pictures of her project using Poems - a Lizard Ridge afghan! (free pattern found on Knitty.com) I've been wanting to make one of these myself, and this may be the push I need to cast on.... And Poems is on sale through Labor Day, so it's a great time to snap some up!

Here is Lisa B's Lizard Ridge. She tells us that she used 18 skeins of Poems for this afghan, and did the edging in Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted. It looks wonderful!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

I just love how the ridges and valleys are in different colors. I think a project like this goes quickly because you just keep knitting to see what the next color combo looks like, and you can't stop. And then you get to curl up in it, or wrap a loved one in it when its done. Perfect! I can also see doing pillows in this technique, or felting some up for a purse/bag. Wouldn't that be cool?

Happy September!
