I love the bright saturated colors, but i was afraid that the colors would muddy if plied together. the yarn has long color repeats. right now i'm thinking of using it for a lace shawl, but i haven't decided yet. targhee has a lot of bounce. it was a little difficult to draft as it was so compact, but i think it turned out ok.
Lizard Ridge 1
i knit my first two squares for lizard ridge. i alternated yarns from the two skeins of Mud Season. i spit spliced the color changes, kept the plain rows in garter stitch like sockpr0n's version, and purled backwards on the short-row rows.
Lizard Ridge 2
i'm using #8 denise circs. the squares are blocked to 12" x 12".

i have enough yarn for a 3rd square, but i will save up my leftovers and combine them with other colorways to ensure a nice color variation.
