Entrelac Blanket

Do you remember my post last summer when I shared my first Entrelac project (here)? I hinted at a much larger project to come, and I can finally share it with you.

For my cousins recent wedding, I created this gorgeous, cream colored blanket. This was a massive project.  In the early stages, I was able to carry it with me when I went out, but in the end it was too big to take most places.

I did get the opportunity to “test” it on a drizzly Sunday afternoon, after working on it for several hours.  The soft texture of the slightly bulky yarn was a great plus.

Baby Blanket Week 5

Week 5I am starting to make good progress, if all goes as planned, I will be finished by this time next week.  This week I was able to attach two rows and knit an additional white stripe and alphabet row.

After much searching (and a little frogging) I opted to leave the corner squares blank.  I knitted each of them in a straight stockinette stitch.

Back to my knitting.

Baby Blanket, week 4

The knitting continues.  I am happy to say, I was able to complete a little more this week than I did last week.  As you can see, I finished and attached a white stripe, completed an additional alphabet stripe and a white stripe.  I usually attach each stripe before beginning the next, but I worked on the white row at a doctor’s appointment – yes it was a very long wait.  I guess I better figure out what I will do with the corner squares now that I am ready to knit them.  Check back next week to see what I decide.
