Not a Whole Lotta Knittin' Happenin'

We got back from Puerto Rico last Thursday (sorry for the crappy pic-- the only one I have of me actually wearing my Tuscany). That's an entire week ago and I 'm finally back to normal. There was zero knitting on this trip other than on the flight there. I knit most of the garter yoke of my FLS but that's where it ended. I just haven't felt like knitting much but I did manage to do a few rows on the FLS today before a doctor's appointment.

Just because I haven't been knitting doesn't mean that I haven't been thing about it....obsessively. I went to the Holy Craft Fair & Flea Market last weekend and spotted a chick in the Owls pullover that I've been seeing popping up on Craftster and in Ravelry. This adorable sweater definitely found it's way into my heart even though it's knit in a bulky weight yarn. So weakly, I went over to the Web's website in search of a bulky weight non-wool yarn to make my very own Owls sweater from.

I decided on Berroco Comfort Chunky which is a nylon/acrylic blend. I chose a blue that I thought was sort of teal looking at my monitor but it arrived today and it's not exactly what I was expecting. I think that I might just be able to live with it as long as the owl cables are visible. Guess I'll need to swatch it up.

The pic on the left is from the Web's website and
the pic on the right the yarn I took when I received my order yesterday. I'm trying to envision what a sweater made out of this yarn would look like. We shall see.
