I am so sorry to anyone who has been struggling with my Lizard Ridge Socks (Ravelry link). I rewrote a lot of the pattern last night. I was trying to say repeat between** and other nonsense and it just wasn't working.
I cast on a Lady Lizard last night, working directly from the printout, rewording and clarifying as I knit. It should be more understandable now.
I am using some Noro Kureyon Sock (Ravelry link), a gift from the lovely and amazing Melissa. I would have to drive four hours to buy this yarn, so it's a treat. I am loving the results.
A lot of people on Ravelry have complained about the inconsistencies in the yarn, but I enjoy the spontaneity. It's like knitting with my handspun--the next stitch is always a surprise. The fabric is yummy and alive. The difference between this yarn and ordinary sock yarn is like the difference between a loaf of fresh, crusty bread from an artisan baker and a loaf of sliced bread from the grocery store.
