She is done, done, done.....

The pinwheel is done and I'm NOT blockin' it!!!
I would definitely make this again although it would need to be much smaller :o)
Started: 2/4/2008
Finished: 10/21/2008
Needles: US7
Yarn: Lots and lots of different ones.
Variegated: Universal Yarn Classic Worsted Tapestry, Color: Party Time
Light Purple: Universal Yarn Classic Worsted, Color: Lavender
Teal: Plymouth Yarn Encore, Color: 1317
Orange: Berroco Touche, Color: 7958
Dark Purple: Universal Yarn Classic Worsted, Color: Grapesicle
White: Zara Feza, Color: 101
I wish I had kept track of how many yards and balls of yarn this took to complete. I think that would be interesting and fun to know.
Final Stitch Count on needles before seed stitch rows: 1220 (I stopped adding stitches starting with the seed stitch rows)
Measurements:
Diameter: 84 inches or 7 feet
and because I am a true geek:
Circumference: 263.76 inches or 21.98 feet
Area: 5538.96 inches
This is the picot edge and I love it. It took FOREVER, but I really like it. The eight rows of seed stitch were truly a test for me. I used to like seed stitch and I still like the way it looks, but I felt that these rows were never ending.
