I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

I lie down in the soft green grass to take a photo of my owls sweater. As I’m about to take the first picture, I feel a tickle at my waist that can only be one thing.
a fire ant.
Owls Sweater

I snap upright and am already mentally stripping off clothes when I realize it was only a stray blade of grass. Suddenly, I look super happy in my owl pictures even though it’s not finished and I won’t be wearing it tomorrow.
Owls Sweater

a. I need to weave in the ends, graft the underarms, redo the collar ribbing and block it.

b. It’s going to be 90 degrees tomorrow.

Maybe we’ll get a cool front next week?

    It looks done. And adorable! But the smiling photos are much better than the first one. But, why are you still smiling when you realize you aren’t going to be able to wear it after it’s done? LOL

    Wow! It looks really, really good. I can’t believe it looks that good before it’s blocked (show off). The collar looks fine. What’s wrong with the ribbing?

      I wanted it to be a smidge less tight around my neck….I love being called a show off. :)

  3. Did you use this pattern? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owls-2
    a friend did this owl sweater for her daughter and had such trouble because the underarms were too tight and reknit it several times. Did you change anything about the pattern or did the fit work out ok for you?

    OMG! It fits beautifully! It looks wonderful! Fingers crossed for cold weather so you can wear it.

    This sweater is on my list from a while! Your version looks fantastic, love it in brown. What a perfect autumn look! I am dreaming of a long spring for being able to wear wooly knits longer ;)
