Slacking on Owls, but I give a hoot!

Tenuous…I think that describes the way I feel about knitting my first sweater (adult size). I started the infamous OWLS sweater. I already completed one for my lil girl but I wanted one as well! I’ve knitted waist to armpit but still having hesitation about moving on.

I believe it’s for a few reasons like… I know have to count more so it becomes less mindless…OR maybe I’m nervous about the fit and having to frog away (I want it a little longer but not sure how the sleeves will make it fit)…and then I’ve just been exhausted lately and haven’t had enough Humph to get moving on it…

To conquer my exhaustion I ramped up a new yoga routine. I’m hitting the hot yoga universe (haven’t done hot yoga for a few years.) My daughter is even in her own yoga class (not Hot) where one child introduced “Sassy Teenager Pose” this from almost 8yr olds…So during her class I have intentions on knitting the sweater more but tend to chat along with other parents and haven’t broken out my needles and eco-cascade! But there is HOPE! I have a road trip this weekend! Headed to Vermont, so with three plus hours in daylight, we’ll what progress will be made on the lump of yarn that sits by my door, that comes and goes with me on pretty much a daily basis with intentions of working on it…Spring must be near because if I’m having this hard of a time sitting still to knit…it has to be getting warmer out.

Hoot! Hoot!

  1. I love the color you’ve chosen for your sweater! The Owls sweater is on my list too, but I’ve got a ways to go before I can get to it. (Mostly my yarn stash is lacking.)

    Don’t be afraid to lengthen the sweater! I can’t remember if there is waist shaping in the sweater, but if there isn’t, all you need to do is keep knitting until you reach the underarm length you want. The best way to figure that out is to measure something else that you love the fit of from bottom to the armpit. Setting in the sleeve does not change the length of sweater at all, so by all means, go longer. I tend to lengthen all of my stuff because I’m tall and long waisted and I don’t particularly like showing off my middle.

    • Thanks! I’m tall too, same problem with length and tops as well but to be able to customize the length is gonna be great! Hope to see your OWLS when it’s done! Keep me posted!
