Here is the Owl sweater that I finished prior to the opening ceremonies to distract you from my Olympic Knitting.
I am essentially a lazy knitter. Instead of sewing on too many buttons, I used beads, strung them on the yarn and then knit them in between the second row of purl "eye" stitches.
I knit a size smaller than I normally would. The sweater fits snugly, which I am not used to.
But I like it.
