Been Rusted, Now I'm Rooted

I have finished the 'Rusted Root'. I love this top and for my next one I plan to modify it a bit to use a pattern I used in socks that I think will look very cool on a sweater. Who doesn't love a sweater that can be knit from the top down with no seaming?

Details:
Pattern - Rusted Root by, Zephyr Girls
Yarn - Cotton Fleece, 2 1/2 skeins in Wolverine
Needles - 6's and 5's
Mods - Tubular cast on for the neck - great video in the link above about how to do this. Great for socks too.




Jason and I went for a walk today and came across some really nice photo opps so here are a few of those...thankfully it seems that Spring has sprung again here in Boston.

those orange tulips are purty! i have a thing for orange these days.

someone told me the alpaca show comes to columbus twice a year. once in the spring and once in the fall. so if you're in town by then...

It looks great on you. Right now I'll just admire knitted garments as I am addicted to socks!
Pretty flowers. I just love this time of year. Although the pollen down here is killing us.
