Well I am finally on the home stretch for my Lizard Ridge blanket.  Here is the final arrangement I decided on for the squares:


and another view with my chosen color for the border.


I’m about 2/3 of the way through seaming the squares together, and will then begin the crochet border.  I have seen several alternative borders on other people’s versions of this blanket…..but I am thinking that I like the rippled border that the pattern called for.  It mimics the ripples in the blanket, I think.  My goal is to have this finished by the end of the month.  It really will only take a few good days of work…..but I am working now, and that is taking more time. 

 So far I am really enjoying my job.  I am essentially the fashion sewing specialist at a local independent fabric store.  I will not be naming the name publically, but suffice to say, its a nice job with really good benefits considering that its part time retail work.  The best part is getting to pet the fabric and yarn!

I hope to present you with finished blanket pictures soon.
