Rings and Owls Sweater....Done!
I had to redo every part of this sweater, but I'm glad I did, because now I have a sweater that I actually like to wear!

My only beef with it is that the body didn't have shaping, but the arms fit well, and I like the way the owls and the yoke turned out.

This was three patterns in one (my specialty...I like that, but I think I'll change it to...): Red Rings by Tonia Barry, O.W.L.S. by Kate Davies, and EPS Yoke Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

I did the sleeves two at a time on one circular needle, toe-up sock style.

You can read about the adventure here.

I like that it's washable (Wool-ease) but I wish, now, that I'd made in less pill-y yarn.

Very pretty! You did a great job of "marrying" the patterns -- nice work. Lovely color, too.
