November Awesome Owl Motif
I always wanted to use an owl motive in my knitting.
This November, I decided to give it a go and finally make something. It was a 'knitting on the road project'. I took some of the leftover yarn with me and put four 3.5 needles and a hook in my carry-on. There are lots of images of owl gloves on the internet - I just picked the ones I liked and started knitting. I made two pairs. Four hours on the plane to Las Vegas - and a mitten was done. Another four hours by car to Grand Canyon - and another mitten was finished. I repeated the process on the way back to LV and then to Toronto. I customized their eyes and hair when I got home.
This pair was for Zoey. She loved those new friends! Hello! Hello! Yarn - 100% wool. Stitch: Double Seed.
Amelia asked me to 'upgrade' hers, and I did it by adding eyes and hair.
For these mittens I used my favourite cable stitch. Yarn - 100% wool. Karisma. Drops Design - made in EU.
