I teach a handful of classes at my wonderful local yarn shop each season. Next up on my schedule are the adorable and super simple, Give a Hoot mittens. With just a couple of easy cables and a few buttons, the mittens come to life as amazing little owls. Brilliant! This pair is a sample for the class I will be teaching. I thought the orange would be fun with little turquoise buttons. The yarn is Cascade's Superwash 220. It's such a great, workhorse yarn.
I knit a pair as a gift for a dear friend's birthday last year and she loved them.
I am totally smitten with the Owls and Owlet sweaters by the amazingly talented Scottish designer, Kate Davies too. But, holy buckets! That's a whole lot of buttons to sew on! Not sure I am feeling that just yet.
