FALL IS HERE..........A TIME TO FINISH SOME OF THOSE PROJECTS THAT LANQUISHED IN THE HEAT OF SUMMER!
Finally am posting photo of the baby pinwheel blanket.
I enjoyed making it, but to do again, I definitely WOULD NOT knit this in a DK weight, because it takes forever!
I used 2 skeins of Euro Yarns Cuddly Fluff, 187 yards each.
I trimmed it with Wendy Shimmer, 60 yards skein, color 2043. This was Plan B, as I ran out of the mohair, and couldn't do the rounds of feather and fan lace I had originally intended. But, I'm pleased with it, and hope my friend will be too!
Next, I'm sending a photo to www.larissmix.typepad.com . She has a delightful Pinwheel Blanket Gallery that's well worth the looksie!
