Does he look more like an owl now???
I think he's cute. I made the eyes out of polyclay with a wire shank. They are crooked- should I resew or leave them googgly?
My Aunt says she was sorted a Griffendor, so I'm going to make him a quick little house scarf. I only had cherry red yarn scraps, so I overdyed it with Black Cherry kool aid. It's not close enough. No way was I going to buy a skein of yarn for a few yards to finish a one skein project! His scarf may be done tonight.
I may make another one for me with some pattern revisions, like knitting the body in the round and getting rid of the wonky 'base' piece. I have a lone skein of brown tweed that would make a good owl (and bust some stash).
I bought the wood tips for the Knitpicks Options Harmony set. I was able to see Amy Singer's before they came out. So after stalking Knitpicks and calling them to find out the relase date, I jumped right on them. I'll post a pick as soon as I get them. However, I do not recall them being as bright as shown on the web. They are very slick and pointy, and i think will live up to the hype, unless you prefer blunt really grabby wood needles.
