I started the New Year with a new knit. As I’ve ceased using animal fibres, this leaves me with a huge range of (much cheaper) *whispers* acrylic yarn to use.

Yep you read correctly, I said the acrylic word. Acrylic. Acrylic. ACRYLIC.

I’ve embraced Stylecraft as they produce the best non-squeaky yarn. I hate a squeak, don’t you?

I’ve loved my Kate Davies Owl sweater, so much I went on to make a cardi from the same pattern. But both in wool, and to be completely honest, both leave me with sore arms from the scratchy-ness (M.E. has left me with very sensitive skin).

So I dusted off my trusty pattern (actually, I simply accessed my Ravelry library and downloaded it but that doesn’t flow as well in a sentence), got my mitts on some Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn and went to it.

It’s such an easy, quick knit, it only took a week, albeit over Christmas in front of lots of telly.

As you can tell, some of my owls are blind. If I could knit on buttons it would be fine but sewing is my nemesis so it’s staying just like that.

Now I’m off to look at more acrylic, I have a stash that needs a little work…

    Love the colour. Totally respect how you’re living a life true to your beliefs. Hoping you’ll not look down on your meat-munching friends.
