Blue pinwheel blanket

Blue pinwheel blanket, originally uploaded by a-chan.

Yarn: Jo-Ann Sensations Rainbow Classic Yarn 1 skein 615 yards and Lion Brand Jiffy, 2 skeins for the border (135 yards/skein)
Needles: size 9us. I probably could have use to a 10, but that's okay, it's nice and thick and warm.
Pattern: www.knitlist.com/00gift/round-baby-blanket.htm

I do love this pattern. This is my 4th finished pinwheel and I'm in the middle of two more and one that's getting ready to be knit. This one I decided to try the garter stitch border to combat the edge roll that plagues these blankets. It worked very well. The only problem I have with it is that it puckers a little along the color change line. It's still cute though.
