Lizard Ridge

Here is my favorite present from Christmas:

It's Lizard Ridge from Knitty. I promise I didn't beg or even hint for Mom to make it for me. I thought it was gorgeous and sent her the link to the pattern (she isn't online and doesn't see these things unless I send them to her). So she surprised me with the finished article.

It's just so beautiful.

Check out those colors.

You can see the texture in this photo:

The curvy parts of the stripes are done with short row shaping so they stand up, giving it a pebbly texture. Very nice.

I am so lucky. . .

Hey, you scored! And of COURSE if you point something out, Mom will make it! That's what she always does with me, too. Congratulations on sending her a really great link.
