A Big Fat Carrot

You may (or may not) have noticed the decrease in posting I was doing last week and the week before. Part of that was because I wasn't feeling great...stupid cold. The other part was that I was struggling with a project and could barely see straight. I think I'm out of the woods with it now (or I'm at least on a sunnier path out of those woods). To keep me motivated, I dangled a big fat carrot in front of this case, yarn. I came across the cutest ever adult owl sweater pattern. As soon as I saw this, I, needed! make this. My reward was getting to buy yarn with the sole purpose of knitting this lovely. Once the baby blanket is finished (another reason for a big carrot), this sweater is going on my needles...and then onto me.

My soon-to-be "hooters" sweater! =)

I was going to do a neutral color such as tan or grey, but it was 54 degrees out and sunny and wonderful when I went to the yarn shop. Spring took a hold of my soul, and I walked out instead with the most wonderful Cascade yarn in Baby Rose. Me likey a lot!
