Owls…

The owl sweater is finished!  I love the way it came out.  Wouldn’t change a thing, although I sort of wish there was less of ME in the sweater…

I’ll try to post full length photos on my Ravelry page at some point but you can check out the owl detail:

IMG_7271I’m hoping to find the perfect buttons for it.  Dark wood, about a 1/4 inch in diameter…and 22 of them.

The yarn color looked so very different in each photo that I took.  The actual color is this:

Berroco Vintage Chunky in Lilacs

 

The pattern was very well-written and I tried out a new knitting app for the first time.  It’s called KnitCompanion and the beauty of it is that you can customize it to your needs.  You can use up to 4 counters at a time so you can do all the rows in your pattern with one counter, then keep track of the repeats with another counter.  You can add in notes, highlight (helpful for patterns with multiple sizes), and I know there are more capabilities that I haven’t even used yet.  It’s 15.99 at the iTunes store but if you don’t want to spring for it, you can buy a 2 week usage for .99 or a 3 month usage for 4.99.  The free version will let you use it in a limited capacity.  After using it for this sweater, i think I’ll be purchasing the full “forever” version.

 

So…what are you knitting right now?

 

 

 

**Disclaimer: I was not paid to review KnitCompanion.  If they want to gift me the full version of the app I would be forever grateful.
