FO: Lizard Ridge Afghan

Pattern from Knitty Fall 2006

Started: January 2007 Finished August 2007



Pattern Notes/Mods: I love this pattern, and the afghan is gorgeous! One thing I did differently, though, was lay the blocks out so that they flow down instead of across, because the afghan is larger that way. Also, i did a garter stitch edging with mitered corners to make the edge a bit more frame like. I sewed tbe blocks together with mattress stitch (Techniques with Thersea)


What I really love about this pattern is that each block is separate and thus each tells a story. There's one that I bought at my dad's in the spring. Three that Mom and I bought before she left me back at school. There's the one fro m my Secret Pal and the one I was knitting when my friends and I got coffee and knit.



On Ravelry, I have tons of blog entries devoted to this thing, because where ever I went a square went.



(complete yarn details here on Ravelry)


And now it's done. What's a girl to do with herself?

Beautiful! I hadn't thought about each square being a story, but that's very cool too! Do you think it would be easy to embroider something small in a square to help remember the occasion? Just a thought... ;)
