sunshine & happiness

seeing as just about everyone posts a progress picture around the third or fourth ring, i wanted to jump on in. i'm using plymouth galway in a four-color-pallette (galway has 200+ yds/ball so only 4 were in order). it took some sketches before i decided the best way to use the four colors in this 7 color pattern - ultimately i decided on pink edges and green sleeves. girly eh? i'm pleased with the outcome so far. it says "happy" to me, and will be so great on our toddlers this fall.

i'm at the point where it's slower and slower to complete each round, but such is a pinwheel. and they are so much fun when done!

and yes, i totally love anny's suggestion for using scrap yarn for the sleeve insert - great tip!!!
