I think if you made it part of a pattern it wouldn't look bad (you get to play with the pieces before you seam anyway).

I've seen several SWS LRs, and they look great. Interspersing the solid colors would be fine, but you might need to do the garter ridge alternative to give it texture.

A fundamentally amoral use of faux fur.

I've been sitting on this WIP for ages (I'll spare you my list of excuses!) and now it comes down to decision time for me....I am thinking about taking the 16 squares that I have completed sewing & lining it to make a wall hanging instead of a blanket.  We moved since I started this project & we have blank wall spaces in the new house that need something.  Thoughts? 

Does anyone have lining suggestions so that it won't stretch too terribly out of shape by hanging vertical - or is this just a horrible idea?

Can I join? I've just started my first square today. I wanted to ask...what does everyone pay for their Noro? I paid $8.50 per ball & was wondering if that was common. Either way, I have no choice as there's only 1 shop in my town that carries it. *sigh*

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

That's about how much I pay for mine at my yarn shop. I'm glad this is a project that I can buy skeins for one at a time, otherwise I wouldn't be able to afford it.

I haven't posted here in a long, long time, because I abandoned my Lizard Ridge for a long time. Now I'm about halfway finished (I'm making mine a little bit smaller, and square instead of rectangle). I messed up on the first strip (I'm doing strips instead of squares) and made it one block too short. Then I decided that to make the blanket symmetric, I needed to make all the strips one block too short, then knit separate blocks to seam on at the end. See, it sounds totally dumbass now, but it made sense then. So now I'm stuck with a too-short half of a blanket, extra blocks, and no idea how to seam them on so it's not totally obvious it's seamed. *Sigh*


Laying out in the snow.


I love the top block with the blue, green, yellow, and orange. The purple and green one next to it, on the other hand, reminds me of Barney the Dinosaur, and I don't really like it.

Same here - that's roughly what I pay for kureyon.  You might want to try ebay also - I have found some of mine there for cheap.

I just looked on ebay like 2 nights ago & didn't see anything that seemed like a "good deal" to me (when you factor in shipping costs). Oh well...it's not that big of a deal I guess. The beauty of the blanket is worth it. Smiley

Only thing I can think of is to make another set of blocks like you have and seam them together for two sides of the blanket, that way it's at least symmetrical.  OR you could try taking out the bind off, and the first row of each square to graft the live stitches.  http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer04/FEATtheresasum04.html

Hope this helps!
