Here they are...my owls!

For those of you who may not know it, the pattern is Kate Davies' o w l s.
I used Tassadit's cropped version as an inspiration.
This was my first time knitting bottom-up, and I think next time I knit a bottom-up sweater, I'll make both the body and sleeves longer...sewing the underarms shut did make the body creep up, and my sleeves look more like bracelet or 3/4 length...but I like it this way, and it's not really a problem since I meant to wear it mostly with my Chataigne skirt, which is very high-waisted!
It's not perfect - I did something weird when I picked up my wrapped stitches at the back, and one of my underarms was sewn shut on the right side instead of the wrong side - but it was my first bottom-up project, and my first project involving cables, so I'm quite happy with how it turned out!
My Ravelry notes can be found here, in case you're interested.

  1. Le tricot fait main n'est jamais parfait mais l'ensemble est vraiment joli (bon, je ne suis pas allée voir sous les bras mais c'est ne pas le principal, hein?). J'aime bien le côté rétro de ta tenue et tu verras, le tricot top down, on devient vite accro!

    1. Merci!
      Et de toute façon, c'est trop tard...top down ou bottom up, je suis irrécupérable! J'attends avec impatience ma prochaine do...euh, la possibilité d'attaquer mon prochain projet, je veux dire!
