Ooo, I like the way you put all the elements of the 3 different patterns together. The owls in the yoke are cool, without big googly eyes they look very 'grown up'.

The original o.w.l.s. pattern calls for using buttons for the eyes, but at my size that would have been 56 buttons. Not! Then I was going to use a gray colored thread to overstitch the eye-purls, but when I finally got done with the sweater I realized I had two choices: 1. Put the sweater in the "needs more work" pile or 2. Wear it as is. I chose the latter.
