HooT - HooT!
C was invited to a birthday party this weekend.
I remembered I saw this pattern on Ravelry earlier this week
and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try it out.
It's supposed to be a key chain but I don't know too many 12 year olds who carry keys.
It would, however, make a nice little accessory for a backpack, satchel,
lunchbox, gym bag, or purse.
I think most girls love owls...
I made three of them. After making the first I switched to a smaller hook and thinner yarn.
C chose the turquoise one for herself and reserved the white one for her friend.
She was quite proud to give it to her.
Normally I'm not one to have a lot of projects going on at the same time. I like to finish one before I start the other but it seems here lately I've been finding other things to work on instead of working on my granny stitch vest. Things are at a stand still with that one. I'm just not sure if I want to finish it. I'm still not liking the colors and even if I do go ahead and finish it I wonder if I'll ever wear it since I'm not crazy about it. But then again, I don't want to completely give up on it and frog it since this feeling of dissatisfaction is somewhat common with me. Often times I'll start something and for one reason or another I'll be unhappy with it but if I continue on and finish it then most of the time I like it. Sometimes things just go through an ugly phase before they reach perfection in the end.
I'm hoping that's the case with my granny stitch vest.
Perhaps it will grow on me.
