Does size really matter?

So, I've finally finished the handmades for my swap, but I've just realised that I forgot to take photos of it all before I wrapped it. Never mind, hopefully my partner will.

I also received the new ball of yarn I needed for Ian and Emily's baby blanket. It's been a while since I last worked on it, due to running out of yarn and having so much other stuff to work on, but when I picked it up I remembered how pretty it really is and I was really excited to get to work on it again. So, of course, that's when I ran into the problem.

I have no idea what size needles I used.

The pattern calls for 2.5mm needles. I definitely used an interchangeable needle, so I definitely went up a needle size or more since the smallest interchangeable I have is 3.5mm. But I can't remember if I used the 3.5mm or went up a little higher to the 3.75mm.

I'm going to try the larger size first as I'm thinking it'll show better if it is wrong. But I'm not too sure how much difference a 0.25mm difference is going to make. If it is the wrong size, will it matter?
