Detalj som visar ugglorna med sina knappögon.
Detail that hows the owls with their eyes made from buttons.
Men nu gör händerna ont, så jag ska inte sticka mer på ett tag. Istället ska jag någon dag när jag känner mig lite bättre börja på en klänning till min kusins bröllop på nyårsafton.
My owls sweater, after a pattern by Kate Davies. It's really, really warm, so now when it's a few degrees above zero (ca 37 F) it really works best without a coat. I think it will be excellent for ice skating, when I prefer not to have a heavy coat. Not that I know if there'll be any ice skatingfor me this winter, my ankles hurts so much that I actually ordered a pair of crutches yesterday. That way I won't have to contact a doctor everytime I need to let my ankles rest. But I love how it looks, my owls sweater. My neighbour/friend Anna and I redesigned the actual sweater, since I was using thinner yarn and needles than the pattern called for, and kept the owls part from the original. That way I could get a more vintage appropriate shape, with a tight fit and it ending at the waist. I also made short rows to make it fit over the bust. The yarn is 100 % wool and I bought it very cheaply at a low-cost chain store where I live.
But now my hands hurt, so I won't knit more for a while. Instead I'm going to start, some day when I feel better, on a dress for my cousin's wedding on New Years Eve.
