You may recall way back in April when I thought I was done with all the squares for the lizard ridge afghan, only to realize that I had one more to do and a bunch of ends to work in.
I worked all the ends in pretty quickly but did not get around to finishing the final square until a few weeks ago. Which means it's time to kick it into gear and get this thing together already!
It took me no more than about 10 minutes to come up with this final layout. I spent more time thinking about how I was going to decide how to place them than it took me to actually put them in order. Does that sound familiar to anyone else but me?
The next step involved soaking them, one row at a time, running them through the spin cycle, and taking them upstairs to the blocking room (aka the guest bedroom)
There were also about a million sharp pins involved, and some smoothing and matching up.
The colors seem more vibrant to me now that the bumps have transitioned into waves. I probably shouldn't say this about my own work, but holy crap it's so pretty!
And now, the seaming begins. Who knows how long that will take.
I will need to have it done before the next overnight guests come for sure. Other than that, we'll just take it as it comes. I thought about trying to put myself on a timetable, realized how ridiculous that sounded, and went back to my puttering ways.
