That’s what the next step in the pattern is called: “Here come the OWLS!”. I’m as excited for them as the pattern writer was.
I’ve been trying to take my time on the owl sweater, though, because I don’t have another sweater to work on when I finish it. (I’ve been thinking about this one, but I’m not sure I can justify buying yarn while unemployed.) To keep the owls going slowly, I pulled out some gray alpaca from the yarn basket and made some fingerless gloves over the weekend.

Because–have you noticed?–it’s acting a lot like spring lately. And I’ve been watching a lot of Victorian miniseries.
