The seaming up of the squares is coming along swimmingly. Row 5 has just been completed (while watching Wayward Pines - YIKES are you watching it?) and I'm pinning together row 6 to tackle tomorrow night. Once that's done all the strips get put together and I concentrate on whether I am going to crochet a border all around (or not).
I am not a crocheter by trade but I do know how to do a single chain and a double and triple crochet (or whatever those double and triple stitches are called). I think with a pattern, YouTube, and the assistance of someone who knows how to crochet I will be able to do it.
Those pink things up there do not have one single thing to do with the lizard ridge afghan by the way. They are some of the samples from a great class I took 3 or so years ago. It was all about how to make a better sweater but the BEST part of the whole class was that we brought little swatches with us and learned how to join/seam them together.
Whenever I have to do any seaming I always bring them out and look at them again to help myself remember just what I am supposed to be doing. I bought the book and have referred to it as well, but the samples are the best.
This is before I laid down row #5. The countdown is on. I promise not to show it again until it's done!
