I love your take on it!  What kind of yarn did you use... and did you have to change the gauge much?  I'm planning to make Anouk but I need to figure out an acceptable yarn.  Great job!  I don't like the flowers/pockets much either.   Smiley

Thanks for all the kind comments!

missknittypants, pattern is from:

http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/round-baby-blanket.htm

I used size 7 needles in the beginning, moved up to 8, and then eventually 9.  I don't feel like it made it go any faster but maybe it did?

flyingmouse29, I REFUSED to pick up and knit when I knew how many stitches were around.  I went to Knitting Over the Edge and looked at their ruffle patterns, found one that started from the inside and ended with a bind off, and used it.  I actually just k1, m1 around, and then the picot edge (pink part) is one row of knitting and then: BO 2, *switch st on right needle to left needle, CO 3 using cable cast on, BO 5*, repeat.

TinyTallGirl, yeah, when you're ready, just continue the pattern.  I think I skip the 3rd & 4th row. 

And now... the FO!  I added a picot edge.  More details in this post:

Glad I'm done with it!  It's redemption lies in it's simplicity.
46  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pinwheel Baby Blanket... or how I spent my summer vacation on: August 06, 2007 12:19:08 AM
My brother in law is having twins... the perfect chance to knit the pinwheel blanket!  I didn't know how long it would take.  Consider this: when you knit a rectangular baby blanket, it's usually 3 feet by 2 feet.  So the longest side is 3 feet.  Well, there is no longest side in a circular blanket, the diameter all the way around is three feet.  Before the "ruffle," there were 548 stitches.  I added the ruffle, 1096 stitches.  The pink picot edging, you CO 5 sts for every 3 sts, so ... a lot more sts.  The pink picot alone took one skein of pink... and at least 5 hours.  If anyone ever hears me musing about making another pinwheel blanket, please slap me upside the head.  Hard.  (Obviously, the next blanket for baby #2 will be a rectangular one).

I'm not too jazzed about the color combo... I think I will knit a stegosaurus in green with pink spikes to tie it together... I feel like the blanket looks like a skinned dragon.  Or I'm just delirious.   Tongue

Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in lime and ...berry?  One skein berry, 4 and a little bit of a 5th of lime.

47  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Bolero from One Skein (Leigh Radford) on: August 05, 2007 11:16:06 PM
This was finished awhile ago, but I just got around to taking pictures of it.  I  used the recommended yarn --Blue Sky Alpacas Organic.  It used almost exactly one skein after all the seaming.  The seaming is a bitch!  I think next time I make it, I might knit the sleeves in the round.  This was originally for a friend's baby, but my hubbs and I liked it so much, we're keeping the first one for ours (no, we have no plans of having children soon), and I'll make more for other people.  I really like how this pattern turned out and highly recommend it!  The yarn is incredibly soft, but it can break sometimes if you hold the yarn too tight.

you rock... I don't think I have the balls (of course I don't have balls) guts to knit a sweater on size 3 needles!  It looks great!
