I came across some terrific knitting patterns at PeriwinklePark on etsy.com, and bought three of them. I tried out the owl teacosy over the last few days using up bits of left over wool.
The body is a very clever shape, pulled in a bit to form ear shapes.
I had to dig around a bit to find the eyes I knew I had somewhere. I found them eventually in my new button box created a couple of weeks ago!
The eyes were a lot of fun to create.
The colour change in the wool doesn't look too bad. It took a couple of days of knitting in between making a big batch of quince paste - a really fun, relaxing project.
