My sunshine Rusted Root
As I was knitting it, I was regretting the colour - so bright you need shades.
But am very pleased with it, apart from little bits here and there - like the fit.  It's not terribly fitted even though I did the XS and my gauge was smaller than stated.
Ah well... Loads on Ravelry did say the pattern runs big.
The 'real' colour

I tried to add more poof by doing the M for the poof part of the sleeves, reducing to the XS, and working an elastic band at the edge.
Some poof at least...

Quite happy with this, but a little concerned that it will bloom and grow since it's 100% mercerised Egyptian cotton from Garn Studio - Muskat

The sweater fits you really well, and the sleeves look nice. ^^ (Yay for not sticking to the pattern!!) I especially like the lacy leaves.
