Thing 167

Today is Day 2 of Promises Fulfilled Week.

This morning I started a panda and realized about a quarter of the way in that I don’t have enough black yarn. What to do? I abandoned ship and started a new project. My living room is littered with the carcasses of unfinished animals.

I had to pick something quick so I decided on an owl Esther requested during my last crochet binge.

I’m not sure about this owl. I didn’t have the right eyes so I used black ones framed with some green cotton. I also tried to give him little pointy ears to make him a bit more owl-y but it didn’t really work.

Esther liked him but wanted him to have some wings. She stitched some on and tied a scrap of blue yarn around his neck.




And since she is a child of the selfie generation, she took this photo with her new friend, Pigwidgeon.

    What about changing the beak to orange? 🙂

      That would have looked a lot more owl-y. Now it’s going to bug me and I’m going to have to change it.
