In August, Alyoops asked if anyone would like to help test knit her adorable Borneo pattern.(ravelry link) Me, being a lover of owls, and slight challenges answered her call.
I finished him in 5 days. It was a fun learning experience in knitting this pattern, I learned how to pick up and knit with stitches and using a waste yarn. It made me extremely happy to know I was helping someone ensure their pattern was ready for use by everyone else out there in the world.
Isn't it adorable? ; ^;
I really enjoyed making the tail. But my favorite part was working on the wings =3
Now in the pattern, Alyoops mentions that these little guys love to perch, and perch he has!
'This is too low for me to keep watch!'
'...Was that a pigeon? HOOOO!'
After securing the perimeter of my front door, little Hoot decided to perch on my head. 'Much more comfy <3'
Thank you again, Alyoops! It was a lovely opportunity to knit up the pattern! I really enjoyed myself!!
