    If you don't make mistakes, you don't make anything.
    -German Proverb

    I knew it was a mistake.

    This pattern is incredibly compelling. There was some long-neglected (and long-discontinued) Cotton Kureyon in my stash. And I thought I'd just "give it a try." Famous last words.

    Oh no!!! You've been sucked in!!! I can't wait to see how it turns out. I keep going back to Knitty to check out their Lizard Ridge. I so want to make it, but the price of Noro is still keeping me from plunging in. Have fun.

    Don't you have a lace project that needs some attention?

    You could just make 2 and turn it into a pillow! (That's the instant gratification side of me talking ;-) )

    Ooh, Cotton Kureyon. What a fabulous idea. Too bad it's discontinued.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one seduced by stash and new projects!

    Well, if it makes you feel any better- that pattern looks incredibly fun- the way I see it, you're completely justified in getting sucked in! ;)

    If you can't hack it or run out of yarn, I think it would be a beautiful scarf. And if you don't like the WS, you could add a soft backing. That is, unless you go all out and produce a blanket!

    We apparently have a similar knitting line-up. That one is also on my to-do list, but I need to pick up some contrasting Kureyon and can't decide on a color.

    Just lovely! I can feel my resistance weakening!

    Famous last words indeed. But, it does look fun.

    Oh you dirty dog! Why, oh why did I click on the link??? That is an amazing afghan and I just so happen to have a skein of Kureyon to play around with!

    It always seems like a good idea at the time...

    I can't stop knitting them! You'll be buying the wool Kureyon soon! There's a KAL at http://fuzzynoodleknits.typepad.com/leapin_lizards/
    Occasionally, someone will post about a Kureyon sale.
    And Aija is knitting a really cool variation at http://sockpr0n.blogspot.com/
    Have fun!
