It's an Owl Woobie!

The last couple of weeks have been kind of a blur. Lots of personal stuff has happened. Everything is fine now, but the knitting and crochet and all related events kinda screeched to a halt. But over the weekend I back to it. I needed it. Yarn, I swear, it does something to your insides.

My dear friends are having a baby soon (well, December) and they revealed that the baby boy is gonna have an owl-themed nursery. Which is, in my opinion, one of the best choices for nursery theme. So, I do what I do, and hit up Ravelry, and that is how the crocheted Owl Woobie came to be:

So cute. I love it. I think they will love it too!
As you all know, I'm not much of a toy/amigurumi maker, but I think I did pretty okay. I think that is one adorable owl face.
I added and edging from Edie Eckman's Crochet Borders book, because I can't just leave a pattern alone. :) You can see a list of my mods on my Ravelry project page.
For this woobie I used various Knit Picks yarn I had in the stash. I have lots of Comfy Worsted and used that for the dark green and used some Swish Worsted for the light green. I think they go pretty great together! The pattern is the Owl Lovey Security Blanket.


Now off to find more owl things to make...

I really love this! The colors are lovely too. I love seeing things other than pink or blue for a baby. I just did a Hudson Bay blanket for my soon to be great-nephew and I couldn't be happier.
