I told you I was going to make a sweater






"Owls", a free pattern found here: Clicky
More details on Ravelry here... I'm too beat to write much here. The gist: It's not quite perfect but I'm pretty darn happy with it. And undecided about eyes.




Also, there's some sort of cave man trying to devour my dog.


Edit: Haha, Knit/Purl has this sweater in it's newsletter as a thing to make for "$125 or less", using the yarn the pattern actually calls for. Mine cost half that, and I probably have about half the yarn I bought left (I used parts of both skeins so it's hard to tell), which means those two skeins of BMFA LSS would've probably made a larger size with relative ease. Plus I like this yarn waaay better.

So Blue Moon for the win, guys.

  1. It's lovely and perfect and looks great on you. I kind of like it without the eyes; I knew it was Owls but it's not so obvious.
