owls make me want to be a better knitter

Every winter, I make a scarf or two. I only knit in straight lines; no increasing, decreasing, or any fancy stuff. I'm that kind of knitter.

But this pattern makes me want to be a better knitter: the owl sweater.

Oh my. That is quite possibly the cutest sweater ever. If those owls were mine, I would wear them ALL the time.

Needled has kindly written up and posted the pattern, so you (and I, once I learn to knit properly) can make your own owl sweater: the pattern PDF is here, and also read Needle's notes.

There's also a pattern for adorable knitted owl mittens, free from Kelbourne Woolens.

Ok, lately I've been the repetitive scarf knitter myself but I am totally inspired by this owl sweater! Thanks for all the great links :)
