Been knitting on and off for about 50 years, sporadically trying to crochet, just bought a lucet. More details about my knitting, crochet and tunisian crochet can be seen at https://www.ravelry.com/people/Rosebark for which you need to be a member, but this is free.

Entrelac baby blanket

Another one for the local hospital's SCBU. The stripy yarn was left over from the gloves I made my friend some time ago and the blue was in with a batch I bought cheap on ebay some long time ago. The colours seems to go all right and I thought they'd look good knitted as entrelac. I started at one of the short ends. I underestimated how big it would be initially and had to undo one triangle to make it about the size that SCBU requires.

When I had done all the knitting, I crocheted a border (doubles) in a fortuitously matching yellow I happened to have. I like my blankets to have borders - I think it kind of brings the whole thing together/makes a nice finish.

There was still a little left of both the stripy and the blue when I had finished this - the stripy has now finally been finished (further post to come...)
