Owlie Socks by Julie Elswick Suchomel. (Hey family notice the designer's middle name? Cool hey!). These are on my to-do-list...
So when I got my Simply Knitting magazine Issue 94, I just had to make these gorgeous Owl Mittens.
These were wonderful fun to make. A real quick knit.They are knitted flat with no thumb shaping, just a cast off one row and a cast-on the next. I made two pairs in a weekend over the school holidays using up recycled 12 ply (aran weight) wool from the stash.
Yarn: 12 ply pure wool (the creamy bone colour is part of a large bag bought at a moving sale at an op shop for 50 cents. The brown wool was part of a mixed bag of oddments I acquired from a clean up of someone's stash).
Needles: 4.5 mm (knit on two needles)
Buttons: Relics from the grandmother's button collection
The creamy bone mittens belong to the middle daughter Mel and the brown ones are mine.
