La Lechusa Loca




Cindy bought a cute magazine called Crochet Today with an adorable owl pattern tucked inside. I decided, following my attempt at a yoga bag (that's for another post, friends) to try this owl. He consisted of several single crochets (sc or sk-uh) with a few sc2togs.

One important rule that I continue to read and blatantly disregard is measuring gauge.
Always measure the gauge. Okay. I didn't learn that from the yoga bag. And I did NOT learn it here with the owl.

Ian insisted on helping stuff the owl, so on Sunday afternoon, I rushed to finish the body of the owl, as my son can be very focused on projects. Here he is, adding the fiberfill and showing off what appears to be a very large and decidedly un-adorable owl. Granted the poor thing is missing a beak and wings. But still. You can look and compare. I think you'll see what I mean.

Sc2tog! Mercifully, it doesn't really matter what size the owl turns out to be. I do happen to have enough yarn to continue and try to make the owl the right sc2togging size.

And a thanks to my sc2togger blogger and friend in crochet mishaps for giving us a place to showcase them.

Crocheting, eh?
You might get a kick out of Threadbared. They've stopped updating the site, but there's a goldmine of hilarious patterns (and commentary) there, many of them crocheting projects.

Hi Linda,

Your helper is as cute as they come and I'm sure he's going to love that owl forever and ever.

I still have (though it's falling to ruin) a Winnie-the-Pooh (not crocheted) that my sister made for me ages ago.

Sounds like you are all having fun.

Much Love,
Cindy's Aunt Kathie
