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: progress report
The entrelac baby blanket I'm knitting is now more than half finished. If I keep to the pattern there will be five repeats of each block of 4 colours. I have nearly finished the third block. I'm amazed that so much yarn is still unused. I could make the blanket longer. But I have already seen some baby hat patterns that appeal to me. So any leftover wool will probably end up as hats.
This is the pattern I am following which I won on the recent Mack and Mabel giveaway.
It is a very clear pattern and is my first attempt at entrelac. For crochet fans, I have found many crochet patterns for entrelac blankets. Just Google "crochet entrelac" to find them.
I'm pressing on with this blanket whenever I have some free knitting time. Today for example I have not yet picked up my needles, but intend to before nightfall!!!
