Okay everyone, this is the last time you’ll have to admire one of these owlets, I promise.
Pattern by A Morning Cup of Jo, and downloadable on Ravelry. This is my third attempt and this time, I feel I really have nailed it. My owlet’s eyes are smaller and I’m still not an expert beak embroiderer, but those are minor details It’s the crochet I was concentrating on. I’ve got the shape right, and the correct number of stitches & rows. Successfully followed the pattern without having to unravel all the time.
Here are my 3 owlets. Attempts one, two and three. I crocheted a little loop for them all using DMC Perle cotton, the idea being, to hang them in a tree in the orchard for photos. Unfortunately it was too breezey so I had to make do with laying them on a few logs.
My parliament of owls stands at three with this particular pattern therefore. That’s not to say I won’t be crocheting more owls in the future. In fact I will. But they will be following different patterns.
Weather has been gorgeous these past few days. Gibbs has been enjoying lots of fresh air and play time. And here is a photo I managed to snap, after one very energetic play session.
Okay, I know I’m his “Mum”, so I’m biaised . . . but I do think he’s a good-looking lad lol.
