When I saw this pattern knit up, I thought that it was adorable. When I actually saw someone wearing it at a craft show, I decided that I had to have it! I wasn't too sure about knitting a bulky sweater but everyone in the Ravelry project gallery looked great so I figured that I'd try it!
I ordered Berroco Comfort Bulky in Copen Blue from Web's for this project and even knit an extra ball (just in case). So I don't know how it happened but I ran out of yarn with literally a few rows to go! I was really bummed but decided that the best thing to do was order more from Web's and cross my finger that either the dye lot was the same or, if not, that the color was really really close. I was very relieved to find that though the dye lot was different, the color matched perfectly. So here's my Owls sweater (the color in the pic is slightly off).
I'm planning on putting eyes on one of the owls but it just hasn't happened yet. And since I won't be able to wear this until fall, I have plenty of time!

This turned out so lovely!
I'm wanting to make one for myself, and possibly my mother in the coming months. (she lives in Michigan, but I just want one. lol)
I have the pattern saved and everything, I'm just a little terrified of knitting up a sweater. lol
