My Owls sweater

Here's my owls sweater to date:


I'm finally getting somewhere! I originally started it with some alpaca worsted, but I don't think the yarn is really worsted weight (it was bought from a local farm in Lancaster, Pa). So, I changed to Paton's Classic wool. Then, I had the opportunity to procure several skeins of Malabrigo worsted in my favorite color. I started over for the third time (making the s/m 36" version). Then, I realized the pattern called for bulky weight yarn. So I started over for the 4th time, this time making the 38" M size. Everything was going fine and dandy until I realized I had done the waist decreases at the wrong stitch marker, which led to another frogging. Now I've made up all of my backwards progress, and am finally making some headway. I just hope it fits.

It looks great so far! I hope it fits you when you're all done.

Try it on now!! Don't chance it.

Although at this point I'm thinking if it doesn't fit you might just want to eat / fast until it does to avoid another frogging. ;)

On second thought... don't fast. You might disappear!!

lol, it will fit. I haven't put it on yet, but it is stretchy enough that it will fit.
