Half-way I thought it would be too small so I considered pulling it out and start again a size up, but I am so glad that I didn’t. I didn't bother with the eye-buttons, I like the owls as they are. For other knittish details look at my Ravelry notes here.
Also, with May starting off with some chilly days (like, 12 degrees C, brr) I can wear it for Me-Made-May! It's incredibly comfy and warm.
