Slow Progress


Yes that would be me sewing a few more sections of Lizard Ridge together. The temperature is dropping and it will only be a matter of time before ol' Shazza is laying back on the couch sipping a merlot and want the warmth of a nice blanky to wrap around her. So I am trying to get it finished before I get to that point. Please tell me if I ever get the urge to make this or anything like it in the future just how much I hate sewing up knitting, I would rather be knitting. To top it all off it has to have a crochet edge around it as well and there are lots of annoying little ends to be sewn in also! But I am motivated, really I am, watch this space for developments.

Speaking of knitting, I have finished another Newsgirl Cap and this is now for sale over at My Shop. I hope to add a few more over the next few weeks so keep checking to see what is available.

The kids are back to school on Monday after having their Easter break so normal programming will resume, as in I can get near the computer occasionally without a screaming match and the house will no longer resemble a war zone. Well that is the plan anyway. Till next time, happy knitting.

Wow Sharon, that blanket is going to look amazing. Just don't spill the merlot on it!

Suzi said...

It is beautiful, to see it all done is going to be amazing!

And here I was going ot contend myself with a scarf made form Noro, perhaps I should buy what I would for the scarf and stash it away yet for my own Lizard Ridge. As for sewing up, maybe i can pay some one to do it???
Perhaps I should just knit the scarf!

May the force be with you during your seaming process!

The blanket will look great when it's done and go perfectly with Merlot.

The hat looks too cute! Will you be publishing the pattern?

Lizard Ridge is looking good. Just lately, I have come to enjoy seaming. It does take a long time though.

Debby said...

Your blanket is gorgeous!! All that seaming looks awful though. You deserve a reward after finishing it!

Donna said...

I love the blanket, but I don't think I could do it myself! School holidays are still going here, but it's nearly over :)

Suzi said...

Back again! What colour is your slow cooker? Orange? Olive green?

Despite that nonsense I would like to take ypu up on your kind offer!

Love, love the newsgirl!
I was gonna knit Lizard Ridge, but the more I hear about assembly, the less I think about knitting it....it sure is pretty, though!

Ann said...

Don't we all hate sewing up? Anyway, it will be worth the effort once it's done - you have our support!

AR said...

That is going to look so amazing! I can't wait to see the blanket.
