knitting milestone

m y . o w l . s w e a t e r

if you can believe it, i finally made it through an adult sized sweater. it is for me of course! i love this sweater. i have already worn it on a couple of cool nights but it probably won't make a regular appearance until fall.

details: owls pattern free on ravelry. this was modified to be more of a casual, throw on sweater. not fitted like the original (i didn't do any shaping).

check out my ravelry page for more details!

brown sugar shortbread from la times. i am not a fan of shortbread (one of the few cookies i really dislike) but make it with brown sugar and i am in love. so so good and super easy. perfect for summer. i dipped some in chocolate but i think it is actually better plain. throw in some fresh berries and tea and you have a perfect treat!

I HAVE to have that sweater! I loves owls so much. Started even before Hedwig, believe it or not.
Maybe too complicated for me though? I would love to see it in person so that I could see how the back turned out without the shaping. I don't want a fitted sweater either.

I have been in love with that sweater for so long. I love the little owls so much. One of these days I WILL make one myself. I saw that you found your way to the UU group on Rav. It was cool to see someone that I "knew" there.

Just foundl you bags on Etsy--love them! I've been making do with the Vera Bradley "Lola" bag--which is now discontinued, as it was the perfect size. But I see I'll have to shop you're shop as I love the print choices!


P.S. Don't worry about not liking shortbread--I love it--so I'm sure I've eaten my share + your share of shortbread in this world!
