Onto Fifi...

I finished Rusted Root this morning. Well, almost, I still have to weave in the ends. I can't believe it, but I misread the pattern (more than once, obviously) and finished in 2x2 instead of 2x1. Bah! Oh well, I still love the sweater and know I will wear this one a lot. I want to make it in another color, maybe using the new serindipity tweed from brown sheep, and not screw up this time. I found sexy knitters quite late into the last KAL so I didn't start Rusted Root until July 6th. Fast knit, though I had to frog many MANY times, as I'm a very new knitter. This is my first adult garment and first lace project and I can't wait to start on Fifi, my first cable project. Yah! I may cast on tonight.

That turned out so cute! I can't believe that is your first adult garment - and doing one with lace as your first one, no less!! Can't wait to see what you do with Fifi!

You did a wonderful job for it to be your 1st knitted garment! It looks great on you and fits perfectly! I wouldn't worry about the waist ribbing no one would know!

Great job and congradulations on your first Adult garment! :) You did a fabulous job and I can't wait to hear how much you enjoy Fifi your first cable knit. I have done a lot of cables and I am in LOVE with Fifi, it is fast and a lot of fun to watch the cables trickle down on the garment.

Congrats on a job well done! I like how your ribbing looks - that's the great thing about KALs we get to see wonderful FOs with different alterations.
