so, i have recently frogged a project and given up on the idea of another.
i plan to come back to these, or something like these, at a later date.
but, not just now.
most of the ‘owls’ that my friends were knitting are done.
and they’re fantastic!
i had all these ideas of changing the cables and adjusting the shaping…
so many ideas that i talked myself right out of it.
my friend c, decided only to shorten the sleeves
wise since she will be able to wear it through the spring and into the summer now.
she decided this, however, after knitting some of the first long sleeve (cuff up).
quick, before she could unravel it, i took it promising to reuse it.
i wan’t sure how at the time,
but my kids saw it and immediately knew what it would be.
so i ripped a little,
decreased a little here and then a little there…
and now, ta-da! the resulting finished project is this:
a nest for a toy owl
isn’t spectacular really at all.
but i do feel an odd sense of accomplishment none-the-less.
(and my kids really like putting him ‘to bed’ in it)
it’s also a pretty cute hat for the little guy.
don’t ‘cha think?
