Oh, pretty!! I love that yarn! What a great project for organic yarn Smiley

And yeah, I love how this sweater fits too. My Rusted Root is probably my favorite hand-knitted garment.

Nice work! It looks wonderful.

I hope there are some Rusted Rooters still knittin' out there.  I have had the pattern and yarn for this forever.  I finally cast on last night.  I hope to have some time to make some serious progress on this on the weekend. 
I do have a question, after the lace pattern starts, are there supposed to be stitches after the 2nd distinguishing marker and before the next sleeve marker??  I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around it last night... maybe I'm doing something weird??

Hi Shae16, I am still knitting it Wink You are on row 1, right?
If I calculated it correctly, there is 1 stitch between the second distinguishing marker and the following sleeve marker for every size.
After this row, when there's written to knit "same as row1", just remember that you'll ALWAYS have to do the "K to one st before (sleeve) marker, M1, K1, slm, K1, M1" and you can't go wrong.

I'll have to remember that solution to deal with my armhole holes! Cheesy (I always get them, too, but I was seaming them...DUH! I hate seaming)  Grin

Yay Zenissima, I am so glad someone else is still working on this!  How far are you??  Oh yeah, I did have to rip back and start over because I was doing the increase in the wrong spot. I was only to row #6 though, thank goodness!!  Thats what I get for starting so late at night.

Oops.. well, at least it was only row 6 Wink Glad that it wasn't too bad. How far are you now? I'm on row 70-something but I've got a bigger problem to face... I just might have ordered too little yarn and the yarnshop ran out of that dyelot. *keeping fingers crossed*

I am double crossing my toes and fingers for you!!  I am only to row 25 or 26.  I haven't had lots of time, but when you start adding all those increases it takes forever to just do one round!  I love watching the lace take shape, and hope my sleeves will be poofy!  What yarn are you using?
« Reply #387 on: September 11, 2007 03:13:43 PM »

Oh I agree, it takes forever.. only when I got past the decreasing (measured from the underside of the sleeves, I've started decreasing 2 inches after that point. 7x double decreases (ssk k1 slm k1 k2tog) every sixth row under each sleeve, after that 6 plain rows and I've just started increasing again.)

Can you believe I got lucky? On the swap board on Ravelry a kind knitter said she had a ball of that same dyelot that she was willing to send me! So I'm saved! I am using Debbie Bliss Cotton DK in colourway Apple. What are you using?

« Reply #388 on: September 11, 2007 04:23:30 PM »

Apple green or red Apple?  I am so glad you found some more yarn, now you can knit without worry!

I am using the Cotton Fleece, but I bought it in the spring so the color Dusty Sage is more spring than fall, and now I am wishing that I had a richer color. (Like I really think I can finish this for fall wearing!)  But I think it will be pretty anyway.

I finished mine recently...
I made some modifications, especially to the neckline. I call mine Square Root! I love this top; it fits so well.

More info on my blog, Ravelry page, or Flikr page.
