Flown the nest....




Yes, several more owls (six actually!) have been finished off and have 'flown the nest' to their destinations overseas (the UK!)


You may recognise the colours that you see on this little chap as he was made with leftover wool from my Navajo blanket.  It is very satisfying when you can use up leftover wool making something else and, making an owl is an excellent use of wool!!



I differed the sizes of the owls by changing the ply (thickness) of the wool and using a smaller or larger crochet hook.  I crocheted the eyes on the smallest owl as it is going to a child and I wanted to make sure that the eyes couldn't be pulled off.  The eyes on the larger owls are glued on.





Now that I have finished all the owls I intend to make for some little while (!) I have started a new project to keep me occupied in the evenings.  Here is a little glimpse of the wool I will be using....



I'm using this very simple set of instructions from Sandra of Cherry Heart.  I'll post more photographs shortly.

  1. The house must feel quite empty without all your little owls around. I hope they arrive safely at their destinations and that everyone likes them
