So, to answer the questions of a few readers, the Lizard Ridge pattern is a series of short rows (which creates the ripple effect) and the pattern suggests the "Wrap and Turn" method followed by "Closing the Wrap" method to achieve it.
I was 2/3rds of the way through my practice square before I remembered that I was supposed to "close the wraps".
So I restarted my square and began closing the wraps but if you do this the way the pattern suggests, your wraps may show. Mine were showing sometimes and I didn't like the look.
So I tried Cat Bordhi's style which is better, but I found that it also slowed me down considerably and as I'm on a bit of a deadline, slow is not good.Then I checked out Nonsuch Knits blog post on the Lizard Ridge where she shares another method. I tried this method (which skips the wrapping altogether) and boy, does that work well. It looks neater, and goes much, much faster too. And I can't tell the difference, can you?
To answer another question, I'm planning a variety of colored squares similar to those shown in the original pattern so here is square #2 and part of square #3. Which leaves only 21.5 squares to go!P.S. I'm still working on the GAAA too, hope to have another square of that to show you soon.
