A couple of weeks before my due date, you may have remembered me mentioning that I had a few unfinished projects on the needles..
Once I finished my Gramps Cardigan, I realized that there was no way I was going to finish up my Rocky Coast before the baby came. Instead I opted for an instant gratification baby knit.
I decided to make our little one a last minute Owlet sweater out of the beautiful Madelinetosh Tosh DK in the Olivia colorway. This tiny sweater only took me a couple of days to knit up.. which was perfect timing!
|Do you see the little owls perched on the yoke?|
I've always found Kate Davies' Owl sweater patterns so incredibly clever.
I've been meaning to knit myself one for quite awhile.
Eventually it would be great to make one for my daughter as well so that her and her brother can match.
One day I will get around to doing that... :)
Three days before my due date I went into my local craft store in search for the perfect buttons for the owl's eyes.
The lady working that day insisted that this sweater would NEVER fit our baby.
She felt that it was entirely too small and that it was better fit for a doll.
She mentioned this maybe.. um... 10 times.
As I left.. she said... "You wait and see.. that sweater will never fit that baby..."
Well guess what lady... I tried it on the baby.. and it's too big.
