Pinwheel Progress

I'm almost done with my pinwheel; about a dozen more rounds. I can't wait! Grrr, for some reason I can't get my photos to load here; but they're over on my blog if you want to take a peek.
I don't have the body part spread out completely; still on the needles. The second photo shows the sleeve folded over the body. I went ahead and made the sleeves to make sure I wouldn't run out of certain yarns early.

Slow, but steady progress...I've been distracted by a few other projects recently (see my blog for more details!) But I'm getting work done on this sweater too!

I've been thinking about the edge. I was wondering what it would look like if instead of the loopy edge, if I did a ruffle edge. What do you think? I still have awhile to think about it... Posted by Picasa

New to KAL but already making Pinwheel.

Hi, I'm new to the KAL but have been knitting the pinwheel for a while now. Well, sort of. I'm using the same pattern but totally different yarns; a mixture of silk, mohair, and funky yarns. Sort of like a large flower of sorts. You can see pix of my pinwheel on my blog at I was at round 40 when the pictures were taken.

I'm about to start the armholes, still trying to figure out why provisional cast on. I think it's so that you have all raw stitches to start knitting the sleeve in the round?

I'm thinking I might modify the sleeve opening; instead of a straight slit, maybe make it a bit round. Like 28 sts across by 4 rows? Has anyone tried this?

Jayden with Kate and Grandma too ...

Wearing the Pinwheel just for you.

It's still warm out and I didn't want her to get uncomfortable with a wool sweater on, so we quickly took as many pictures we could before she started squirming. She really loved Kate ... and made faces when she tried chewing on her and found out she was wool & not rubber, LOL. So here's just a few more pictures ...
