Branches in the snow

Or actually branches waiting for snow, as these were photographed already in September when the leaves in the trees where just so wonderfully beautiful.

If you look closer at the pattern, you'll perhaps notice I've used it before in this sweater two years ago. Back then I fell in love with the owls, but even though I'm still crazy about owls, I decided I didn't need another hooting sweater. But since I still think the pattern is really good, I wanted to follow it anyway. Just leaving out the animals. And moving the waist shaping a little bit closer to the sides.

Pattern: Owls by Kate Davies
Yarn: Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds Chunky
Needles: 6 mm

The Rowan yarn is absolutely LOVELY. 100 % wool and still so amazingly soft! Doesn't itch at all! It's a shame it's so expensive... This stash was brough to me by my parents last time they were in London. So thank you for that!

Warm and comfy! Just what I need when there's still a lot of winter left <3


  1. Tidigare hade jag lite fördomar för 100% yllegarn för jag trodde att de alla är sträva och kliar på huden, men det tycks bara vara så med vissa... Särskilt merinoull är supermjukt. Det beror ju också mycket på kvalitén (och därmed också priset) förstås...

    Jättefin tröja i alla fall! :)

  2. Jag tänkte tidigare ganska likadant, men som du säger så beror det bara sååå mycket på garnet! :)

    Och tack!

  3. Lovely! I am about to start the owl jumper (KAL with a friend) and was wondering whether Rowan Purelife British Breed was itchy or not. Happy to have found an answer on your blog. Thank you.

  4. I'm glad my blogpost was helpful to you! Good luck with your own sweater!
