I needed a good laugh/smile.
Well, you know that green thing I was knitting for-freaking-ever?
I finished it. I loved it. I started trying to crochet the edges together to make a bag.
It didn’t work out right. So I tried just sewing them.
It didn’t work out right. So I tried pulling out the yarn that I had used to sew up half of one side of the bag.
It didn’t want to come out. So I broke out the scissors and…
I cut the knit part. *facepalmfacepalmfacepalm* I was SO freaking angry. Like, almost swore off knitting for a month angry. It was very bad times. And I needed something to bring me up.
While stewing, I (ofcourse) ended up at Hobby Lobby and came across this book.
First thing I noticed about it? The owl. The cutest effing owl I’ve EVER seen. I’ve been on the hunt for a great owl knitting pattern and couldn’t find one that I liked. Well. I found one now. And I squealed.
Legit squealed in Hobby Lobby.
Ofcourse I went home with the book and got to work. Only to realize the pattern was for size 6 needles. And ironically, that’s a size I DON’T have. So, I pulled out some size 5s and went to work on them.
His name is Robert Paulsen. Though, Kyle likes to call him Bitch Tits. 😦
His little wispys are what killed me the most. I love, love, LOVE him. I snugged him a few nights after I made him, actually.
And, yes. Without the wispys, he’s only about 4 inches tall.
HOW FREAKING ADORABLE IS HE?!
There’s an option to knit the eyes, but I had some toy eyes left over from making SIL’s Monster Book Of Monsters, so I used them. And you know what? I doubt I’d ever knit the eyes when I make this pattern again.
