Notes

this one was frogged heaps, i kept making silly mistake (not kates fault at all), and having to frog and reknit. I feel like i knit it thrice …

and its done, and i like it, like it a lot, its a warm sweater, and it fits, and i do have small owls. I used a black cotton tape with studs instead of a buttons or a zip … and i made it a cardigan.

Swatch 2 done, with nice clear Owl, and look I knit it in the round and discovered it was a nice little wristlet, now do I knit a second and then the cardigan or knit the cardigan and then the second mitt?

so the first swatch showed the yarn to be way to fuzzy for the owls to show up, and I’m onto swatch number 2,

and yes, I’m making this as a cardigan and in a finer gauge.

and I’ve frogged and reknit the body 2-3 times, and the yoke once …
but I think i’m done now - all set to steek …
let the steeking begin!
