FOs: Owl Hat and a Cowl

I’ve already finished two projects this year! On New Year’s Day I finished a cowl for myself. I started it on Christmas, ripped it out to change needle size, a finished it in a week. Not bad!

The next week I knit myself a hat. I’d tried to knit this hat before, and had a great deal of trouble with it. In the end, it went to my nephew because it was just too small and there was no way it was going to get any bigger without my finding some more yarn somewhere. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of that version before I handed it off on Christmas.

I was determined to have my very own owl hat, though, so I used the gift certificate I got for Christmas to buy the yarn for this beauty.

    When I saw the owl cables on Ravelry I squeed like crazy, ’cause we had a knitted blanket that had owls and kitties when I was a kid. I would love to recreate it.
