I'm almost finished the fourth strip for my Lizard Ridge afghan and I have finally decided, after weeks of effort, that perhaps this isn't a very pretty strip. In fact it may be the ugliest strip ever knitted for a Noro blanket.
Perhaps it will look better in context. Once it is surrounded by the other strips, this fugly one may pick up some tips on looking good from its peers. Or it may be that this strip will make the others look even prettier just by being near them, like a homely bridesmaid in a wedding party.
I've decided to finish it. After all, I won't really know until all the strips are blocked and laying out together. If I think it ruins the blanket I can always buy more yarn (I'm good at that) and make a new strip.
