I've just finished sewing the button eyes on Elizabeth's Kid's Owlet sweater, here on Ravelry, and designed by Kate Davies. It is made from Ella Rae Classic Superwash Chunky heathers yarn and because the yarn is thicker than worsted and the pattern calls for large needles (10, 10 1/2), this sweater took me all of four days to make. I did have problems with gauge though, so I am hoping that it will fit Elizabeth. And I hope that Austin, Texas gets temperatures below 70 degrees so that she has occasion to wear it! Hoping that it gets legitimately cold is too much to ask for this year.

We are having a Florida winter in Atlanta this year---high 30s first thing in the morning, and then highs in the 60s and 70s by mid-morning. It's wonderful!!! But we knitters are bemoaning the lack of sweater/scarf/hat/fingerless mitts-wearing weather.

We always want what we don't have, don't we?
