So, I've embraced my knitter novice status and decided to postpone the full owl sweater until I have a few more skeins under my belt. Instead I'm working on a sweater vest with this little pocket. It's made from a fairly simple cable pattern that I put together from a few different online patterns. Mostly here and here. I finished it a week ago and was waiting to post until I had more of the body to show as well, but here we are and the body is simply a wide swath of green freckled with bungles and bloopers. I just figured I may as well celebrate small victories. It didn't photograph very well, daylight would've helped, and the features of the cable owl will be more pronounced once I add some detail work. I'll post more as this progresses. And thanks to the finger puppets for their modeling work and for doubling the meaning of "owl pocket."
And in other happy knitting news, The Great Catsby approves of my new hobby, and his is the final word in household goings on.
