I know you’ve already seen a few thousand of these, but here’s mine (pictured here with my yummy golden Through the Loops Mystery Socks).
I’d been wanting to knit this pullover since the pattern came out earlier this year. Truth be told, I’ve been wanting an owly sweater ever since Mandy made this adorable owl cardigan for her Maggie two years ago. So I was mighty glad when Kate Davies designed this adult-sized pulli in January. But it wasn’t until I saw Heather’s version that I actually couldn’t take it any more. I had to cast on. (Well, first I had to order yarn. Fortunately, it came super-quick.)
But then I had to decide which buttons to use…
I got a lot of advice. Click through to flickr to read all the great comments. I stayed torn for awhile. In fact, it was another 3 weeks before I finally made up my mind and sewed them on. I love these little yellow buttons.
I decided to give one owl on the back purple eyes.
I kind of wish I’d given the purple eyes to the owl to the right of the one I gave them to. Maybe I’ll go back and switch them.
