Emily's Owl!

A few days ago I was skyping with my son and his girlfriend. They happened to be visiting at a friend's house when I called.  This friend is called Emily and, while I was talking to them, Emily made a request for an owl.  Well, who I am to refuse an owl request?  



I swapped my embroidery needle for a crochet hook and I got started on the owl.  These cute little owls which, I make using a pattern which appeared as a free tutorial on the Hopscotch Lane blog, some years ago now, are quick and easy to make.  A few hours later and Emily's owl was ready.  



While I had the yarn and my crochet hook out I remembered that, some while ago, I had also promised my youngest daughter a 'mini' owl.  I make these using an adaption of the same pattern.  I quickly finished this second little owl and they are both now ready to post off to their new homes!
