So my wife is too busy working hard to write about this beautiful sweater she made but I couldn't let the weeks go by without sharing it. We made the kids all their birthday presents this year, and our daughter was pretty excited to find this sweater finished and sitting next to her bed on the morning of her birthday (she may have seen some of it in progress). Those are little owls.
If you look closely, you can see that one of the owls on the front (and one on the back) is awake, with little button eyes:
The pattern is "Owlet" by Kate Davies, available on Ravelry here. My wife said some knitters have adapted the pattern to make this sweater with Totoros instead of owls. That is pretty awesome, but I can't figure out how to navigate Ravelry to find it. Ravelry is even more confusing than Pinterest to my male brain. Anyway, the yarn she used was "Sublime Cashmere Marino Silk (Aran weight)," also on Ravelry here.
