Cast aside in a corner, ignored for its prettier cousin, Ripple, is the Lizard Ridge afghan-in-progress:
Made of Noro Kureyon (which my Japanese pal tells me is pronounced "crayon"), a pattern from Knitty, it consists of many many wrap-and-turns, which results in a peculiar bubbling. This disappears when blocked, but is actually kind of a neat effect:
I like Kureyon for its sometimes spectacular color runs; it's a little rough, a little homespun, but reminds me for some reason of the Bread and Puppet Circus in Vermont, where we used to go some summers. Not really my bag anymore, but homely and wonderful at the time. Kureyon is definitely still my bag, for reasons nostalgic first and aesthetic only second.
