Entrelac Tunisian Crochet Blanket

Hello friends!
I always have lots of different projects in progress at any given time... For some reason I find it difficult to just work on one project at a time, especially if it's something big like a blanket. This Entrelac Tunisian Crochet Blanket is one of the things I'm working on at the moment, I started it in August 2012, I just do a little bit every now and then and it's slowly growing :-)
I'm not really using a pattern as such, I watched this great series of Entrelac Tunisian Crochet tutorials and made a square version instead of the rectangle version shown in the tutorial :-)
The yarn I'm using is Merino Angora Silk DK (8 ply) by Cleckheaton that I purchased at Crumbz in Healesville :-) It's a very interesting yarn to work with, it's super light weight, but super warm. I've made a few other things using this yarn and I really love them (a cardigan, a 3/4 sleeve sweater & a loom woven scarf).
I have n't decided how big I'll make this blanket yet, or if I'll keep it when it's finished or maybe give it away at Christmas time (it should be finished by then!)
Do you have more than one piece of work in progress at the moment? What are you working on? Share in the comments, I'd love to hear what everyone else is up to :-)

  2. Yes, I also LOVE the geometric qualitities of the entrelac crochet! Although, I'm not so sure about the colours I've have chosen for this blanket any more. At first I thought they were all fabulous, now I'm getting a "1990's faux colonial" vibe from them :-( LOL
