Completed Project: Pink Rusted Root


Cast On:
May 31, 2007

Bind Off:
July 17, 2007

Yarn:
Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Berry

Inspiration:
Zephyr Style Rusted Root

Needles:
Boye's Circulars Size 5 for ribbed edges, Size 7 for the rest

Yardage:
5 Balls with some left over {207 yd per ball}

Modifications:
Not many. I changed the type of yarn. The needle sizes to get gauge.

Enjoyment Factor: 10

Good Things:
This yarn was such a beautiful shade of Pink, it's not too pastel. I love the fact that I could try on the sweater as I was knitting, because it is knitted from the top to the bottom. This yarn in machine washable and dryable. This is the second adult sweater I have knitted this year and it only July! Knitting in the round is great and much faster knitting for me. Making it easy for me to bet my deadline of July 31st.

Bad Things:
The yarn does split some as you knit with it, so you have to be careful.

Ugly Things:
I don't think this sweater looks as good on me as it did on everyone else, but you know what? I am going to rock the hell out of it with my Bermuda shorts . . .believe that!
