Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Entrelac baby blanket: are we there yet?
I just have one more block of 4 colours to knit and then the main body of my entrelac baby blanket will be finished. I just have to add a knitted-on edging after that. I have a few decisions to make first. Should I block it before or after adding the edging. How severely should I block it? I could make it almost flat. Or I could leave it quite springy and quilt-like. I will probably sit on the fence and aim for something in-between. Depending on what it looks like after blocking, I might or might not line it. I have some lovely soft white flannelette that would do the job nicely. Decisions, decisions.
