OWL FO

I never could have finished this sweater so fast if I hadn't been home all last week.
I held 2 strands together & used about 15-1/2 balls of yarn. Which is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500 yds, and about 750 yds held dbl.  I followed the pattern for size 5 for body then size 3 for arms & size 4 for owls & neck area. I think I could have gone for a size 4 in the body but this way its a little more roomy.
I also used a size smaller needle than pattern suggested as I think I am a loose knitter.
Now all I have to do is shop for buttons.
Plus I got approval from Lexa, she gave me squinty eyes when I asked how I looked & I choose to translate that into a positive review, not an apathetic one.
