Give a hoot

In preparation for next weekend's Textile Art Fair, I've spent the day making a Jenny King "Give a Hoot" owl which is basically a donation for kids in hospital, the idea being to give the children a Guardian Owl to watch over them. It's part of the World-Wide Knit in Public Day, which I never knew existed until now. And a tad ironic as the owl is actually crocheted. But any excuse to knit and/or crochet is fine by me! 

Anyway, the pattern is really quite easy, fun to make and can be found here. I thought I'd make a couple and than I can just hand them over at the fair. But I might not get past this one as there is another busy week ahead.

I'm getting slowly used to seeing these asian thingies around now, and I'm disturbed at how easily "amigarumi" is starting to come off my tongue..
