Guess what? I'm veering off in a new direction. I'm not just making owls anymore. I'm making SCREECH OWLS!
Whoa. That's a big change. OK. The only real change is I added tufts on the ears.
Here is Ozzie the mini Christmas Screech Owl Ornament and Ozzie the Screech Owl. You can read more about them on my ravelry page.
I'd like to be able to honestly confess that I really am done with the owls, but even as I post this, I have a micro screech owl on the needles using some Knit Picks Palette and US size 2 and 0 needles.
PS - the Santa hat was a big hit in my household.
