It sounds like a lot of people ventured out with their knitting for Knit in Public Day; I did not. While I did venture out for some grocery shopping, I didn't venture out of the house with my knitting at all this weekend. I sat in my knitting chair most of the weekend working on various projects and watching television.
I did make progress on a couple of different projects, but don't have anything completed yet to share with you. I made the most progress on my Lizard Ridge afghan. All the squares are blocked so I laid them all out and spent time on trying to make sure I had an arrangement that I would like. Once I had all the squares arranged, I tried to make sure that all the ridges were properly lined up so I could begin the seaming.
I'm finished with seaming up all the squares. It would have gone a little faster, except I discovered that the pattern on a few of the squares I sewed together did not line up correctly. So, I spent some time taking out a few seams and redoing the work. So now I'm on to the crochet border.
This step will require a little reading on my part and some practice. I've decided to use some Cascade 200 I had in my stash for the border. It is a nice bright turquoise blue color that actually is in several of the squares. I think it will work well and won't require a purchase.
Sherman, my faithful partner in seeking out a cool comfortable spot for a hot summer afternoon did not waver. He remained close by all weekend. What a good boy.
