Do you like our owl?
and I hope we get a few more cool evenings so I can wear it a couple of times. Wish my camera hadn’t died in Italy last year because it’s really not that convenient to take pictures with an iPad. I spent a lot of time trying out different stitches to find a good starting point for owl feathers and my owlet motif is a heavily edited version of a stitch I found on a Russian website. Now that was fun… deciphering not-so-clear Russian instructions, and of course they use different knitting symbols from either American or Japanese sources. Playing with color was the most fun part. Holst Garn Supersoft has over a hundred colors and my favorite is probably “truffle”, a grayish brown that goes well with both grays and earth tones. Just great for owls. :) Front and back, in case you are curious. I knit two halves and then grafted them in the middle; used a 2.5 mm circular needle and six colors of light fingering wool yarn (Holst Garn Supersoft). By the way, thank you for your comments and welcome backs (can I pluralize that?). I can’t believe you still had me in your feed after all this time. Happy Sunday everyone!Posted by Francesca | 4 comments
