Owl Knittery and An Enormous Ball of YarnThursday, April 07, 2011
I finally got together the courage to knit Kate Davies's O w l s Sweater. The most ambitious thing I've ever knitted was a simple beanie in-the-round in garter stitch. It doesn't get easier than that. Now crochet: that's something I can do. I can crochet fabulous flowers, granny square blankets, scarves, hats, gloves - well, just about anything. That's because yarn + one hooky needle = sense. Knitting on two needles, with cables and circular needle pieces no less, is just silliness. Then I saw the picture of the sweater. And I wanted it.
