My boss is away ALL DAY....that means *8 hours* of knitting for me! (it's slow here this time of year) I brought my sweater & another ball of yarn...but I forgot the pattern at home! I went to the download site again but it said I've hit my limit of downloads for the pattern.

***edited because I had asked if someone would pm me the lace pattern, but I got my boyfriend to find the file on my computer at home & e-mail it to me!

Whenever I buy an online pattern, I download it and then forward it to my work e-mail address and an alternate e-mail.  It comes in handy when you forget the pattern at home.

I'm finish, well sort of.  I still need to block it so it will fit smoother. This is my first finish sweater and I am happy with the results.  I use cotton fleece in 'tea rose', and I made the medium size. I modify the collar since I did not want to pick up stitches. I did a crochet crab stitch on the collar and I think it looks OK.

Mlcrays, that looks lovely!  I thought about doing the same kind of neckline but wound-up making it as in the pattern (with some mods).

Here's another finished Rusted Root:  I used Cotton Fleece in Berry and made up my own size, between the XS and S.

And a view from the front:

I'm really happy with how this turned out, even though I wish the sleeves poufed-out a little more...but that seems par for the course from seeing other finished sweaters!

Another pic and details on my blog:

Beautiful Rusted Roots, mlcrays & landshark!

Seeing all the FOs earlier in this thread prompted me to make my own, which I just finished yesterday & am wearing today!  No pics yet, though I will be taking some later.

I used JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk DK for mine, in Ebony.  I also did the same type of decreases that landshark did, around the neckline.  Even after that, it still wanted to roll, but looked fine once I had it on.  The rolling blocked out, which is nice. 

My sleeves puff out a little more than a lot of the FOs I've seen, but that's to be expected for me - most shoulders/straps are too big or long for me, even when the rest of of the shirt fits perfectly.  They still don't puff out as much as the picture on the pattern, but I may be able to block some more poof into them.

Question for all the Cotton Fleece users - the ball band says to wash with vinegar, and the guy at the LYS where I bought it said the same thing, to help keep the colour from fading. How exactly do I do this? Never done a vinegar rinse before so I'm not sure exactly how it works.

My Rusted Root is nearly done (almost to the bottom ribbing, neckline and sleeves all done and all my ends woven in), so I'll need to be washing/blocking it very soon. Weeeee!

I thought I would add mine to the KAL. Very wearable, but I really wanted those puffy sleeves Sad
all the important info is on my blog http://auntieamandaknits.blogspot.com/2007/05/rusted-root-and-interview-meme-of-sorts.html

Randomcyn: All you do is add white vinegar to the water. I added about 1/2 a cup of vinegar per gallon of cold water to the water I soaked mine in (I always do this with cotton) and it still bled like crazy...I ended up changing the water four or five times before I was getting clear water.

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