owls

October 28, 2010



Who doesn’t love owls by Kate Davies? Last time I made it, I wasn’t so crazy about the yarn, so this time I treated myself to some super soft superwash. Yum. It’s such a fun pattern, it deserves to be knit in something nice. That something nice is Cascade Superwash 128 in Lavendar, #1949.

Super fast, easy and adorable knit, but odd bunching at the back. I know people have commented on that and possibly rectified it, but I didn't get around to reading everyone's Rav pages or my last notes if any, so it is bunchy back there. But I can’t see it myself, so it’s just going to have to be okie-dokie. I love my pearl eyes. I made it nice and long, and made it last month, so if I made any other mods, I cannot remember!

Sweater #14 for 2010.

  1. This turned out really cute! I think I might have to make one for myself. :)

  2. It's really a great looking sweater. Love the pearls as well. As to the "bunchiness", can you correct that by blocking it after it is washed?

  3. This looks so cute on you! I've been thinking about this pattern, too, since I've become obsessed with Kate Davies. Looks like a quick knit in Cascade 128. You don't usually post WIPs on Ravelry, and I'm curious as to what you're working on this fall. Something by Kim H?? :o)
