When I returned to knitting about 18 months ago I found things had changed. The Internet didn't exist when I used to knit. Now it has really transformed the way information is exchanged. By looking at blogs and forums, it is easy to see what other crafters are making. One of the things that fascinated me was entrelac which is a method that produces diamonds that appear to be woven in long strips.
When I won a giveaway on the Mack and Mabel blog, I chose the entrelac baby blanket pattern as my prize.
Here is the blanket after working on it for one week. It is all scrunched up as it is still on my knitting needle. But it will eventually make a rectangular blanket big enough to fit a cot or pram.
Entrelac can be worked in any number of colours. I have chosen white, pale green, blue and pink with a border of variegated yarn that includes all these colours. I think the first baby girl born into my extended family will be the lucky recipient.
I chose this pattern as a bit of a new challenge. I also wanted a project that could be "on the burn" through what are going to be some very busy weeks for me. I can already picture the finished blanket in my mind's eye and it is going to be beautiful.
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!!
