ta da!

Another Fo, and a quick one at that. Here's Hedwig, isn't he cute? Well I should say "aren't they cute" as there are 7 owls total on this cowl.

I love how this turned out, and I think the recipient is gonna love it too. Shame I have to wait 12 months before I can give it to her! I've never knit with Dream in Color Classy before, but I'm sure I will again. It is quite a soft merino yarn and not 'itchy' at all.

Of course I had to take a few modeled shots for you :-) I really liked wearing this and wouldn't mind one for myself.... but alas, too many other gifts need to be knit, not least the matching owl mitts, which you know I've already cast on for ;-) Keep your fingers crossed for me that I have enough yarn!

It's adorable and suits you so well! Do you have to give this one away? You do more than your share of gift knitting.

That is the most unique owl cowl I've seen! Cute and I bet your nephew's wife is going to love that. The hard part will be waiting to give it to her.
