For my niece's birthday I knitted up an owl. If you haven't noticed owls are big right now. I see them everywhere on clothing, fabric and in home decor. I found the free owl knitting pattern off of www.ravelry.com. I was then directed to this website for the pattern. Snoozing Ned I love his name, Snoozing Ned. Mine doesn't look like he's snoozing, but more like he's smiling since I flipped his eyes. I'm fairly new to knitting and taught myself how to knit about 6 months ago. I think it turned out super cute and the birthday guests thought I had bought it. High five for me!
