Brooke, I just love Lizard Ridge and someday I'm going to make it too! It would be a huge investment in yarn. Plus, isn't it scratchy? So if you want to actually have a functioning blanket, would you have to line it?
I read your blog....the whole knitting / purling backwards confuses me, but I didn't look at the links. Good for you for learning it. It sounds like fun.
I wanted to ask you why your instructor said that you shouldn't seam the squares?
