Owls Need Big Eyes
While cruising the pages of Ravelry I came across a crochet pattern for little owls ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owl-key-chain-pattern ). I had some cotton scraps I was waiting to move into a finished object and thought this pattern was a good project to achieve these goals. I also thought they would be cute little gifts for my friends. With hook in hand I started on plan. My first couple of tries were not cutting it. I pulled those out and started again. My crochet skills lacks the refinement of some of my more talented friends. However, it did not deter me from making four of these little key chains. My first 3 look okay, but the 4th one looks much better. In the end the success is all about the eyes. I have tons of buttons in all sizes, but currently I have no idea where my buttons are packed. So I was scrambling for 2 matching buttons of any size.. My friends at Kirkwood Knittery gave me the buttons to finally make my little owl look great. Lesson learned, owls need BIG eyes.
