Earlier this week, I was able to work on a small item for my cousin who is due to have a baby in about a month. I made a small owl blanket. I hope it looks like an owl! Owls hold a special meaning to us. Grandma collected owls before it was cool to do so, she had them everywhere. When I was in grade school, I painted her one that I now have. So, I felt that giving my new 2nd cousin an owl was a small way to make sure he always has a part of grandma (great-grandma) with him. I hope they like it!!
The pattern came from Leisure Arts, Animal Lovie Blankets. This was super easy to make and I did it in 3 evenings about 6 hours total. They have some really cute ideas and for a quick gifts, this is perfect! The yarn, you ask? Caron Simply Soft Brites — it is very soft and again, easy to work with! Besides white, I also used blue mint and limelight. The ombre that is very subtle because it matched the other colors so well is Teal Zeal. I bought the yarn from Pat Catan’s. The orange and black are just little balls I have of different colors that I got from Amazon for Christmas.
