FO: Rusted Root



I did complete my Rusted Root on my last day in Vegas. I really like it and am even wearing it to work today. Now I'm back to working on Marilyn's Not So Shrunken Cardigan (NSSC) as well as casting on for the Turtleneck Tube Vest pattern for the Fitted Knits KAL. I'm going to try using Ella Rae Classic in a light spring color. I was planning on starting the Textured Tunic, but realized that the color choice is very similar to my Rusted Root and I'd like to switch it up a bit for my next project. Knitting is a great way to explore new color options and I'm trying to be open.

It looks great. I like how yours turned out. Hope your trip to Vegas was fun!

Robin said...

Very nice!!

I have the pattern for Marilyn's NSSC too but haven't figured out which yarn to use for it. Are you doing the Ella Rae Classic for that one or the Turtleneck Tube Vest?

Susan said...

Robin - I'm using Knit Pics Merino Style for the NSSC and the Ella Rae Classic for the Turtleneck Tube Vest. The Knit Picks was very cheap and the right gauge.

Rusted Root looks fabulous, but you shouldn't have had time in Vegas for knitting!

MrsPurls said...

I've read a few other blogs that have completed the Rusted Root using the Cotton Fleece...most have said it bleeds alot of color when you wash it, have you experienced that yet?

Anne said...

Ooh just gorgeous!! Im so jealous that's just beautiful. Congratulations :)

Your Rusted Root came out beautifully. It fits you so great. And I can`t wait to see your turtlneck tube. It is one of my favorite patterns in Fitted Knits.

Delana said...

That looks great on you! I've seen quite a few of those in blogland. Where can the pattern be found. Looks like a pretty quick knit that I might like to do if I get behind in the SAM KAL :o)
