Now with more owls
I couldn't help myself. After making my aunt's Hedwig I wanted an owl of my own.
I changed the pattern in charmed knits to eliminate the ill-fitting base and to knit in the round. I have the details in Ravelry, but if you leave me a comment I'll note the boring details here.
I also made him a little fatter, but perhaps I got carried away there. I've been calling him Pudgy Owl!
I also couldn't keep from another sock cast on:
This is Regia Galaxy that I've long hunted. It's not quite the patterning I was hoping for, even though I changed stitch counts several times. This was the best I could do. Still, the color changes and arrows keep me knitting just a few more rows.
I'm using my Knitpicks Harmony DPNs, and it's all love. I'll have a comparison review this weekend.
Showing a complete lack of self control this week I bashed the yarn diet to bits and bought 3 more skeins of sock yarn. Carol had an update and I had to have this cool skein of yarn.
Autumn House farms is running a %20 off yarn sale. I bought 2 skeins of Herdwick, my all time fav sock yarn. I mean, %20 off, that's $14 for hand dyed sock yarn. How could I not?
