Here come the Owls!

Hi folks! Big knitting news - I finally finished knitting the amazing Kate Davies' Owls sweater! It's the first jumper I've knitted and the first time I've done cabling so I'm very proud. I was knitting it back in March and I progressed pretty slowly - not because the pattern was super tricky, but because it seemed like each part was fairly straightforward and I was scared to go on to the next bit in case it suddenly got really hard!

I'm really happy with how it turned out, although I suppose it's not ideal to finish knitting a wool jumper in the middle of summer. This pattern is all over Ravelry so I know lots of people knit it - if any of you guys are planning to and would like some help/tips please let me know! There were definitely parts of the pattern that I found very confusing at first.

I also booked a holiday to the Algarve in Portugal, we're going in a month and I can't wait! But let me tell you, it's IMPOSSIBLE to find a flattering tankini in this town. I don't think I'm asking for too much..!
Do you have any holidays planned? And do you knit in the summer or is it more of an Autumn/Winter thing?
