nearly there...

After several dark nights of the soul, my owls cardigan is off the needles.  It was touch and go there for a while.  My steek failed and began to unravel as I attempted to pick up the button bands.  I was able to salvage it, but there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth.  Now to sew on grosgrain ribbon to cover up the carnage on the inside and obtain more understated buttons.
Good news for any of you foolish enough to consider following in my footsteps.  Kate Davies put out her Owligan pattern a couple of days ago--which means you no longer have to be crazy brave enough to steek in order to make an owls cardigan of your very own.
