rusted root


Hello everyone! I'm Mallory and this is my first time knitting along with the SKC. I've started Rusted Root. It's my first time ever doing lace and I think it's pretty fun!

I'm using Knit Picks new yarn, CotLin, on size 7's. I got gauge with some Cascade Sierra on 6's, but as I live in southern Arizona, I knew I wouldn't wear it much if I used the Sierra (too thick, it's hot here man!). The CotLin is nice. I really like it.

This is also my first knit-in-one-piece garment. I like the construction of it. It's a fun knit so far. I look forward to the SKC move to TypePad so we can all get settled in and I can hear from more of you! :)

It looks good so far. I'll be watching your progress to see how the Cotlin turns out. I bought Cotton Fleece online at a discount and will probably try a Knit Picks yarn. Good job!

I love that color! I too am interested in seeing how the Cotlin holds up after a few wears...

It looks great so far! I love the color. I too am curious to see how the Cotlin holds up. You must let us know!

That looks great! The blue is so pretty. How does the Cotlin feel?

Thanks everyone! I will definitely let you all know how it holds up, once I know :) I loooove the way it feels but I am one of those weirdo knitters who likes cotton and natural non-animal fibers best :) So I'm a bit biased!
