Fiber Friday - Lizard Ridge Edition

I went shopping yesterday. I had a few errands to run and decided to stop by the local yarn shop and see if they had any colors of Kuyeron I don't yet have for my Lizard Ridge Afghan. I found several colors I didn't have, including color #138 pictured above.

This is Kureyon color # 78. I hadn't seen this color before, so I figured I pick up a skein. It is mostly greens with a little purple and burnt orange color.

The shop also had a lone skein of color #88 that I had to pick up. I think the color has been discontinued and I was hoping to find a skein for the afghan.

I also picked up a skein of color #92. It is sort of a muted rainbow of colors. I have been ordering my Kureyon from Webs because of the discounts available, but none of these colors were available.


The shop has a small rack of buttons up by the register and I always take a look as I stand there waiting to pay. And as usual, I found a little something.

There are two of these ceramic buttons and each one is 1.75 inches wide. I think they will be nice on a bag with a loop closure.

Well, only one more Fiber Friday for 2006. This may be hard for me to participate in for 2007 as it is going to be the year of the stash for me. Although I will have new yarn from the sock club and yarn purchases will be allowed to finish a project. So we'll wait and see.

Oh drool! I've never been a big fan of Noro but man, seeing your yarn pron and lizard ridge as it progresses might make a convert out of me!
