I recently finished the entrelac baby blanket. It was my first time doing entrelac, and I really enjoyed it. Before I started reading the pattern I watched a video series on YouTube on entrelac, and I found that really helpful. It's very interesting structurally, and once you get the hang of it, it becomes second-nature.
It was a good project to work on while hanging out with friends because it didn't require a lot of concentration. My non-knitting friends were amazed at how it looks like the strips are woven through each other, when it's really all one piece. Since it is knitting one rectangle at a time, it feels really fast. Once the knitting was finished, I did a simple crocheted border and then blocked it.
Lacy Scallops Christening Gown. My mistake was not doing a gauge swatch. I was assuming my yarn was the same weight as the one in the pattern, and apparently it wasn't. The dress is supposed to be newborn size, but I'm guessing our baby girl will be two before she can wear it. Oh, well. I will just have to knit her other things in the meantime.
