Pinwheel-y Goodness!

Look. It's pictures of my pinwheel blankie. Yay! (Well, technically, it's not MY blankie, so much as it belongs to Shalom, who got it as a wedding gift. From me. Minor details, right??)

Click thru and look at it in the large size. It's awesome! The Noro is fabulous for the rings, and the Steadfast fringe is gloriously plush. Oooooh. (By the way, ignore the heinous blanket underneath it. We were at the wedding reception/picnic and it was my last chance to photograph the pinwheel.)

And a close up of the fringe:

Again, indulge yourself, and click thru to look at the big picture in Flick'r. Those colors are just unbelievable. Now you can see why I didn't want to give it away!!

Pattern: Pinwheel Blankie

Yarns: Noro Silk Garden #37 for the body; Steadfast Fibers Wonderful Wool (the purple one at the top) for the edging and the fringe

Needle: Size US8 Addi Turbos (circular, of course)

  • Wow! It looks great. I love the stripes/rings of Noro, and the wool looks great for a border/edge. How big is yours, and how much of that Noro did it take. Not that I'm planning anything...
