These are so freakin' adorable!
I made these for a birthday swap for my February 2011 due date group, and I will be sending them off to New Zealand tomorrow - but I had to show everyone a picture of them first.
Pattern: Owl Puffs (Rav link)
Yarn: Leftovers! Mostly Malabrigo, but also some soy wool I had as well as some bamboo wool.
Needles: Size 4 and 6 dpns (depending on the owl)
Would I knit this pattern again? Definitely! They take less than an hour to knit - the trickiest bit is getting the eyes sewn on and to embroider the beak. Willow and Piper have both demanded owls of their own, so I guess I need to dig through my leftover ball stash.
Um, yes, I have a large leftover ball stash.
