This is the one I have OTN now. It's much bigger than this at the moment, the picture was taken early into the blanket. The camera is packed in the hospital bag right now, so I can't get a more recent picture. I think I cast on 90, each block is 10 with 9 blocks going along the bottom. For the one I'm going to start right now, I believe I'll CO 112, doing 8 stitch blocks, should give me 14 blocks width.

This will give me something to keep my mind off of the c-section I'm going in for tomorrow.

*edit* would help if I added the picture....

Okay, when you do your alternating colors, do you break the yarn or carry it up to the next row? I'm debating since I'm going to be using 3 different colors.....

thats really pretty! i do break the yarn at the end of each row. i dont know how to carry it up along the side lol. and from someone who has had a C-Section please dont be too scared about it. the most important thing for you to do after your surgery is to take care of yourself and take it easy. its a pretty quick surgery about 45 min only and you will be awake. but as long as you take it easy you should be fine. i wish you all the luck and please let me know if you need anything!

Yep, my last baby was a c-section. Silly little boy refused to turn around....and I wasn't about to deliver a butt first child.

I've got 2 triangles on the foundation row going so far. I figure I'll get the triangles out of the way before attempting to learn backwards knitting.

As for the other blanket. I really don't like it...and how can you knit something you hate? The reason I don't like it? The color changes in the yarn are too short. They hide the pattern in the entrelac and it just looks messy to me. I'll probably finish it, I'm more than halfway done, but for now, it's been put on hold.

well i guess you had your baby now so CONGRATS!!!!!! I hope you are both doing great. I haven't been working on my afghan much because I am trying to finish this other crochet afghan for my cousins daughters b-day coming up. But maybe I will pick it up and work on it this weekend. I have 10 rows done so far from the entrelac.

Thanks! I took the blanket to the hospital with me, but didn't get to work on it at all. I've not been able to knit since we came home. I'm always either sleeping or nursing

I love your entrelac! I've never tried it, but after seeing your gorgeous blankets, I can't wait to try!!
Is it terribly hard?
