I have loved this sweater since the day I saw it over a year and a half ago, which is weird because I HATE birds. Like really. Terrified. I won't buy anything with a bird on it and I've been known to cry on the subway when a bird comes too close. But this owl sweater just spoke to me, for whatever reason. I tried to fight it, but in the end I had to make it.

I used Cascade 128 Tweed bulky weight yarn. I used a lighter colored yarn so that the owls would pop. I chose Cascade 128 yarn for this project for it's great stitch definition. I decided to use a tweed yarn because I knew it wouldn’t distract from the owls but it would add some visual interest to the rest of the sweater.
It's the same yarn I used for my Pike Place sweater but in a different color (obviously). I love tweed yarn and I'm always on the lookout for it, but it's usually so expensive. I got this yarn pretty cheap - probably because it has been discontinued - in three different colors from Webs, a yarn store in Northampton, MA. (Side note: If you are at all interested in yarn, you must check out their website or visit the store. They have sooooo much yarn! I mean, their URL is yarn.com.)
