Linking the lizards...
The Cog and I played a big game of Lizard Ridge jigsaw on the bed last night. I think we came up with a combination that we both liked. I get antsy if I spot two squares of the same colour too close together. It's a balance thing.
I read a useful tip for using the Hague linker online last week - after mounting both pieces, weave any ends up and down over the linker prongs - that way, the ends get sewn in too = even less making up! As this afghan will have at least 98 ends and probably more, plus a complement of vertical floats down one side of each piece, this is a handy piece of advice!
So far I've 28 pieces linked into two strips, and the third strip is partly done. I have a sore thumb now. That linker is sharp! =)
