FO: Owls-my 1st major knitting goal
Seeing the Owls sweater pattern by Kate Davies is what pushed me over the edge last Feburary 2009 and made me start teaching myself to knit. I finally made it.
Here is a pic. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky in Silver Grey and Dill Buttons for all 36 eyeballs:

Beautiful!
Your sweater is beautiful. I loved this pattern when I saw it, but have not ventured into the world of sweaters yet. This one is on my list, though!

I adore this pattern and have it in my sweaters to make list too. I want to make mine without the body shaping though.

Your's turned out very well and fits you nicely.

Thanks everyone. I am twiddling my thumbs right now waiting for some yarn to come in so I can start my next project. I think I am addicted to knitting
