Today is my friend Jo's due date. She's expecting her first little bundle of joy! I spoke to her over the weekend and I know that she is definitely ready to meet her little girl or boy. I've been checking facebook regularly to see if she posts any updates!
She shared photo's of her nursery a while back, and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I'd be knitting for her. Her nursery has an owl motif, and one of the standout features are gorgeous golden drapes. We have talked about how awesome her drapes are and about how cute owls are, so the choice was obvious... I would knit her an Owlet sweater in TFA Green Label Aran Weight yarn in Gold!
I knit the smallest size, I figure it will fit the baby when it's about 3 months old. I opted to only sew a pair of green buttons on one owl, it's gets the point across that there are owls on the yoke without being overwhelming. If I had knit a larger size I would possibly have sewn buttons on all the eyes, but for such a wee little sweater I thought this was enough. And I do think that I will knit a larger size at some point. This sweater is just too cute!
