Best. Day. Ever!
OK,maybe not ever…..
This week I was approved to try an OWL. This is a knitting challenge for those who are on Ravelry and are in the Harry Potter House Cup group. I have not tried a sweater in an adult size for a few years as the first was a bit large and took quite a while to finish.
I am planning to make a sweater. I had the yarn from a knitter I used to know who was clearing out her stash in prep for a move. She had over a sweater’s amount of this yarn – it is a lovely blue/grey – and I think I found the most perfect pattern. It’s wrap sweater with some almost cabley ribbing on the bottom and the sleeves.
Feel free to visit the link to see my progress.
