Over the past couple of years, my (almost) 11-year-old daughter has added some new animals to her list of favorites. Along with dogs, polar bears and dolphins, she now has a favorite bird – Owls. Apparently owls are getting popular in general, because we see them everywhere lately – Hannah’s got an owl backpack, blanket, notebooks, shirt, etc.

Owls are big in knitwear design too, it seems. I found this Cute pattern last month, so I knitted Hannah an owl hat.

She picked out the yarn -it’s knit in Cascade Pacific, in the Baby Lime colorway. I found the buttons at JoAnn Fabrics – there are four different colors of blue, teal and green and they look really cute as owl eyes on the hat.

Along with the hat, I think I’m going to incorporate the same owl design into a pair of mittens (or maybe fingerless mitts) for her at some point this winter.

My other owl-related knitting project this fall is for Hannah’s upcoming Birthday Party (owl themed, of course). I saw the Owl Puff pattern on Ravelry a little while ago and had been wanting to make one. In thinking about the birthday party, I thought these would make really cute party favors – and at this age, we don’t need to be sending home Goodie Bags full of candy and junk.

So I made an Owl Puff. And another.

It’s kind of addictive actually. They almost just seem to multiply on their own.

Ok, so not quite. But I can make a couple of them in an evening, so they’re a very quick knit – and a great way to use up scrap yarn. The only cost I’ve had is for the safety eyes, but I’ve spent less on those than I would have for little toys and candy for goodie bags.

And these are much, much cuter. :)
