Small Rusted Root

I finished the Rusted Root. I used up all the yarn that I almost couldn't finished it. So close. Anyway, I think it's too small for me which I am pretty upset. I love the pattern and the yarn... I think I will give it to my cousin,(even I don't really want to give it away) but I know she is not a big fan of RED...


Another sad thing is, I finished the leave scarf which match my Foliage hat last night. I finally weaved in all the ends. I forgot to put it away and left in on top of my desk last night. So, Cookies, I am assuming, ate part of the scarf. I was so mad this morning when I found out, mad at myself that I didn't put away, mad at Cookie that she always eat my yarn...


Because I was pretty upset this morning, Andrew made me pancakes...

Then later in the afternoon, we went for a little drive to Oxford. According to the lab supervisor, there is a place called Rich Farm in Oxford which sells awesome homemade ice cream. So, we went there today. I had a coconut and a mocha almond fudge ice cream and Andrew had a chocolate shake. They were actually pretty good. I love the coconut the most.

I don't think the Rusted Root look too small!!! I like it the way it is!

Sorry about your scarf. Mick at my sweater, so I know how you feel.

Yum. I LOVE ice cream!

I agree with jennsquared - it looks great on you (even if it feels small)! Have you blocked it yet? If not, you might be able to make it a little bigger through blocking...

Yikes - that's definitely a chew mark! Do you have a little yarn left over to try to darn it? Aside from the chew mark, it's really lovely.

I'm glad you had pancakes and ice cream to make you feel better : )

I agree, unless it is uncomfortable, I think the sweater looks fine. I'd try to stretch it a bit when you block it. I'm so sorry about your scarf. I hope the ice cream helped. :)

I think Rusted Root is great. It's form fitting and flattering. Show yourself off!

Painful that Cookie took a bite out of your scarf. You can fix it!

Coconut ice cream! My all time favorite. Sounds like that place might be worth the trip.
