Who am I kidding?
I just finished weaving in the ends, which is not an easy task with mercerized cotton, and I steamed the whole sheepang. I don't know when I will be able to block it, so here is the picture of my first pinwheel blanket. It was made with Super 10 multi cotton, color orange juice, knitted with 4.5 mm circular needles and it's 40 inches in diameter. The beginning is not very professional, but it'll do. I don't think I'll do another one of these blankets. It was not as much fun as I thought it would be. The damned YO's! Anything else? Just glad it's done.
Oh, yeah - the border is knitted on garter stitch and I had the idea from one of Elizabeth Zimmermann's books. She was a genius. This border was the most fun with this work.
