Doesn't that look like an owl? Yeah, that looks like an owl. There are some minor beginner flaws but overall I'm pretty psyched. I think I'll make myself a pair in cream.
Pattern from Ravelry here! If I can do it, you can too. Trust me.

|Crochet hooks are my friends.|
|Knitting needles are not.|
So I'm attempting to knit owl fingerless mittens for a good friend. Knitting, because crochet can't quite achieve the look that I'll get with knitting.
My mom has knitted for years. It's how she quit smoking when she was in her thirties. Right now, she's working on this gorgeous cabled lace hoodie for me and I know it's years of practice that enable her to do it so effortlessly but still, I thought I'd be on my way to animal-bedecked armwear by now. I'm still trying to get all the stitches to go around the circle.
At least I'm getting paid.
When I'm done, I'm gonna crochet myself a pity present.
