Have I told you all lately how I SO LOVE NORO!!!!! :oD So I just had to have a big heaping of it! YUM!
Okay so you rather see her beautiful skin all stretched out instead?
And of course here is a closer look of the squares:
From bottom to top #224 and #84. I thought I would not like that bright orange/red colorway but LOVE it! Gives it a little bit of a "pop" :o) Since most Silk Garden colors are more subdue.
Here is #249 & #247
And the last two are #88 and #224.
I really loved the browns in #88 when I saw it. Helps balance the other dark colors!
Panel #4 of 5 is completed! This is the home stretch! I purchased my seaming and crochet finishing yarn this weekend at my fav LYS (Charlotte Yarn). It will be in Cascade 220 #8886 Italian Plum - a really pretty deep purple. I took a pic of my yarn cake but I couldn't get the true color to come thru no matter what the lighting was on it! Sigh...oh well. Even the pics on other yarn websites do not show a good depiction of the colorway!
I am really getting anixous about the ending of this project because:
#1. It has been a long process - but I have been enjoying the pleasure in the process :o)
#2. I am not all that comfortable with seaming and I would really hate to muck up all my blood, sweat in tears for the very end!
#3. I barely know how to crochet, and lets not talk about a "decent" crochet so to do the entire edge on such a big circumference is also freakin' me out! for the same reason I stated in the latter part in point #2 (please see above), and
#4. This whole "soak" process I need to do for this precious blanket is right up there on the list as part of the same reasoning again stated in point #2 :op
Special Thanks goes to Anna for calming me down by answering my zillion questions! :op And Spring for all of her finishing advice from her beautiful complete LR!
So wish me well to the finish line!! My next update on Lizard Ridge will be the finished product! Coming soon to a blog near you (late July)!
