Thanks WIPs.  I fixed (patched, rather) that error...the slightly larger hole in the lace pattern.  It was more noticible than I realized when I saw the pictures.  I also changed my bind-off, and I think that looks better now, too.

Here's a new pic of it.

BTW, in case anyone is wondering I used Cashmere Canapa.  It took a little less than 5 balls, for a size small sweater with medium-ish sleeves and some added waist shaping.

Here is my second round of rusted roots.  This time I made a few changes. I did not follow the directions for the puffy sleeves and I knit the neckband at the beginning  instead of picking up stitches. So far I am happy with the mods.

Looks great! I think I'm at the same spot on the body as you are. But I still have to pick up for the neck and all that. I'm hoping to have it finished this weekend, we shall see!

I finished mine about a week ago, I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Maize, 3 full skeins and a small amount of the 4th for the medium size. To get gauge I used a 3.25mm needle but I changed to 3.0mm throughout the torso up to the hips where I then changed back to 3.25mm. The sleeves have some pouf, though I'm wondering if maybe the heavyness of the cotton and the slight lax in my ribbing is what is keeping them down. I think if I had made a few decreases to the ribbing or used a 2.0mm needle it would be tighter around the arm and help keep the pouf up. Overall, I'm really pleased with the end result.

lisacb- I am a sucker for anything yellow, and your rusted root is no exception!  It looks great on you!

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

I finished my Rusted Root today, but when doing some weaving I noticed a small hole in the back. I have NO idea how it happened, but I'm going to take it to the LYS for some grafting help. Hopefully I will have a picture of it tomorrow!

Lisacb, how did the Cotton Ease work with the pattern? Is it heavy? I was thinking about doing another Rusted Root and I LOVE Cotton Ease. I might have to pick up some tomorrow at Michaels.

I finished mine yesterday, too. I still have to weave in my ends (ugh) but I am pretty pleased with it. Hopefully I can get around to posting pictures right away. Smiley

Finished mine up last night!
