Fall is coming up & so I've been itching to start on a big sweater project. I have been enamored with this owl sweater pattern for some time:
http://needled.wordpress.com/2009/01/16/o-w-l-s-the-pattern/
(for more pics of what it looks like on, check out this: http://needled.wordpress.com/2008/11/22/owls/)

Anyone else interested? It uses a thicker yarn, so I think it would knit up pretty quickly!

oh my geez!!  that is the cutest sweater I have seen in a long time!!  I have a ton of gray yarn I have been wanted to de-stash into a cable knit sweater...and I think you may have just provided the best pattern ever for it!  I am in!  I already have a sweater on my needles right now, and I just joined the "two-hour sweater" knit-along (although that sweater should be done in one day) so I may not get to start this one for a bit, but I will def post pics of my progess.

Anyway, that was the long way to say...I am game!

*cry* I don't have time for this right now! I've been looking at this for some time, but I don't have the money for $12/13 yarn!

Crap. LOL Why don't people make patterns for RHSS? Wink

okay, I have started and re-started this sweater more times than I can count now.  But I think this time I have the proper number of stitches for the size I want!  I am making it with red heart worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles, which is why all the adjustments are in order.  But assuming I have it right this time I will start posting pictures of my progress soon!

Yay, my sweater seems to be working out this time.  I am altering the pattern a bit due to using worsted weight yarn, but it is going really quickly.  I did all you see in this photo with only one ball of yarn!  (I love red heart super saver when you are living on a tight budget).  At this point I am only 4 rows away from starting the "short rows to dip yoke" part of the pattern.

weee...first to finish!  Made with red heart super saver in gray.  Knitted on size 8 needles.  Altered the pattern quite a bit due to my yarn/needle combo, and some changes just to fit my body better.  I made it a bit tight under the armpits, but not so bad that I can't wear it comfortably.  I just put eyes on one owl, the buttons are vintage ones from my great aunt Eleanor.  I LOVE my sweater! 



Hope some other people finish soon, would love to see everyones!
