Rusted root finished

I'm really happy to finish this with no errors on the lace knitting at all for once. I've been knitting a year, and this is my most complicated pattern to date. But it's so well written, that even I could manage it. I used the brown sheep cotton fleece in new age teal, which is lovely to work with, and even nicer to wear.

I now need to decide whether to knit a second green gable with some cherry colour cotton fleece, or try the marigold pattern. Any ideas?? I'm always so indecisive.

I'm starting my Rusted Root on Sunday. Your's is gorgeous!!!! I think that you could either try Ms. Marigold or Wicked. I enjoyed knitting Wicked a little bit more, since I'm not well versed in crochet (Ms. Marigold uses crochet to do the ruffles on the sleeves). Either way - congrats on a job well done. I hope mine is a beautiful as yours.

That looks great, and it is a lovely colour.

I'm with Susan, why not do Wicked? Although a Green Gable in a cherry colour sounds very nice as well... I can understand your indecisiveness!

thanks. I still haven't decided. I'm leaning towards another green gable, I can always get some more yarn to make ms marigold in the future. Although I can't crochet well either, so think I'd leave off the ruffles!!

I am biased since I am working on the Ms. Marigold right now :o)

Plus summer time is comng and it will be to hot to knit wool for the Wicked! I am saving that one for my fall project!

Keep us posted what you decide on!
