Entrelac Throw

This pattern is called Entrelac Throw and it is in the
Vogue Knitting on the Go – Baby Blankets Two book.


I am using Vanna’s Choice yarn in 5 colors.
Dusty Blue, Dusty Green, Taupe, Linen and Silver Blue.
I am knitting with size 6 and size 9 needles that it calls for.

I have learned there is a definite pattern to the order in which you knit and pick up stitches! They should have told you that in the book.

Also this pattern book is very small! This is why I made a copy of the page and then enlarged it, so that I can also better keep track of where I am.

I like this pattern because you don’t have to make gads of squares and then seam them up all at one time. There are still little ends to work in but I am making sure I work those in as I go.


Just remember that when you start, your square’s will look all funky and skewed, but that is OK, they even out once you get more squares attached. Then lightly blocking should make it most perfect!

Updates on WIP

Sittin’and a Knittin’


Isn’t it just like a knitter to have several projects going at once. For me, I enjoy having many projects that I can choose from any given day. I also will switch from knitting to crochet and back again. For some reason crochet makes my hands hurt quicker than knitting. Also, if I really want to make a pattern, if I just go ahead and start it, I feel that I really will get it completed.

Here are a few of my WIP and some updated photo’s.

Brea Handbag


needs handles and a lining. I just can’t seem to find the “just right” handle.

My Something Sky Blue

It is coming along… I try to pick it up and knit on it some every day. One sleeve is almost done and the ribbing along the bottom is coming along.

Crocheted Crazy Baby Blanket

this is about the size of 4 dishcloth’s squared so far and the bumblebee tape measure is for size reference. I have a few more rows completed since this photo.

Starry, Starry Night Baby Blanket


I am enjoying this little blanket and it is taking much of my time lately.

Some projects that I recently finished are, 2 Loomed Versions of Ballband Dishcloths
and 2 Crazy Dishcloths.
