Just in time to coincide with the start of Summer ‘proper’ (for once the solstice has coincided with what looks like a nice long spell of warm, dry weather in the UK!) I posted off my Lizard Ridge square to the organiser of this year’s ‘community knit’ project.
Lizard Ridge is a fabulous pattern, originally published on Knitty (one of the very best free pattern resources and if you don’t already know it get yourself over there right now!) and the designer very kindly agreed that the wonderful p/hop fund raising group could make one to auction for MSF later this year.
Each square will be knit with a random shade of Noro Kureyon so the end result will, I am sure, be spectacular. The square was great fun to knit and I am seriously tempted to embark on an enormous Lizard Ridge of my own! We’ll see.
Meanwhile, I urge you to check out the p/hop pattern collection. They are all wonderful and the concept is inspired. In a nutshell, designers donate patterns to the p/hop cause and buyers decide how much they would like to pay for each pattern and donate to MSF via the ‘Just Giving‘ site.
And if you feel inspired to join in I am sure that more squares would be appreciated. Find the details here on Ravelry.
