a knitter navigates through life

Wednesday, September 5, 2007


Did a test run of the Lizard Ridge afghan today. I took down all my squares from the wall and laid them on the bed to see how much they actually covered.

Looking good so far. Now the question becomes: will I be happy with this? Or will my crazy perfectionist nature drive me to add MORE squares? Of course, there will be a border that I'll have to put on. Hmmm. Opinions, anyone?

I love all the colors and the pattern. Great job. I am envious.

Remember that depending on how you put them together you can add or subtract a little bit of width/length. Mattress stitch will reduce total size by a smidge, crochet edgings can add. It looks fabulous.

Don't have anything to add about the borders other than picking a color that will blend with most or all of the other colors.

For me I'd want to make sure it was big enough. Nothing like being cold with a small blankie.

It does look really wonderful!

Oh. My. Gosh!
This looks fabulous! Great job!

I'd add more, though. You won't be happy unless you do.
