It's called "Peacock". It's a very rich teal. Very pretty. I was going to use it for something else, but the gauge was totally off and I had forgotten I even had this in my stash. Lucky for me that I have plenty of it, so I went ahead and bought the Wicked pattern. I'm making the Rusted Root now and am almost finished. I like Zephyr's patterns. They are very easy to read and I am loving making a top down in the round!

Silver Ilix- I really like yours, did you do crossovers for the bottom rib?  I'm all ready thinking about make my next one too, this time for myself.
I'm just about done, all I have to do is sew the pocket.  The yarn I used (Cascade 220) is a dark teal, and the color bled onto my needles! Does anyone know how to "set" the color?  Vinegar?

yes a salt or vinegar bath is the best way.... when I dye I use vinegar.
Fill a tub or sink with warm water and place the sweater in it.... gently squeeze it to release any extra dye...... then squeeze out the water and fill the sink again. This time add about half a cup of vinegar and imerse the sweater in it....let it sit a bit and then repeat the squeezing Cheesy You should check it in another bath to see if you need to set it again, so rinse using the warm water bath without vinegar. You can repeat this without worry that the fibers will felt as long as you are gentle...
Thanks for the compliments! and, yes I did do the crossover on the bottom rib! Good eye! Can't wait to see yours arnogg.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Silver Ilix!  Every loose end is weaved in and it's all ready to be set and blocked.  Hopefully I will be able to get a finished pic modeled by the gift recipient this weekend. If or when I make this sweater again, I definitely will do the crossover ribbing at the bottom, it rocks.

has anyone done this in the laceweight?

I have a ton of www.handpaintedyarn .com laceweight and I was thinking about doing this.  It's not that cold here in Florida in the winter, plus I want to use this stuff up.

I really love looking at all the pictures!

The pattern calls for worsted OR laceweight mohair.  I remember they had a picture of the laceweight version on their website for a while, it was cute!  I don't know why they took it down.  I also can't find anyone who's made one.. maybe you should be the first, thishoknits!

On a different note.. Has anyone ever made a sweater into a cardigan?  I love the green cardi Wicked that was posted here a while ago, but I'm not sure how to modify the pattern... do I split it in the exact middle of the front?  how do i do button bands?  Do you have a preferred button hole?  do I need selvage stitches?  any info/ideas would be great.
