For this week’s Show & Tell, here is a sweet little owl hat that I knit up for my cousin’s baby. You might recognize this pattern (and yarn) from this other little hat I whipped up for a friend’s baby. But this one has pink eyes and that one has turquoise eyes. I’m not trying to pull a fast one on you.
I have a bunch of projects in the works right now, so I hope to have at least one REALLY amazing thing finished for next week’s Show & Tell. Which, by the way, I have decided will now be posted on Fridays. Deal with it.
I have been doing a lot of stuff IRL to keep myself sane, so apologies for my radio silence this week. Blog posting should be back on track for next week; I have a few things lined up already. Thanks for you patience.

Post Script – Have a great weekend!
I enjoyed making these two gifts for a friend’s baby shower in February. They are having a girl, and the nursery is a fun mix of blue, turquoise, and spring green colors and an owl motif.
I knew when I saw this blog post about an owl hat that I would have to make it for this baby. How cute is that! I already had this lovely yellow cotton yarn (easy care for parents), so I knit this little hat right quick. I had to buy buttons for the eyes, but they were completely worth it. (See how the buttons compliment the color of the blanket? I’m so clever.)
Oh, this blanket. It is so lovely. It measures about 30″ square, so it will be perfect for covering up in a stroller or playing on the floor. Really, one can never have too many blankets. Especially for a baby. I used the Lion Brand Vanna White acrylic yarn (again – easy care), and I just love the drape. The pattern was easy to remember and worked up quickly.
Hooray for accomplishments! What have you finished up this week? Please share in the comments.
I love this quilt. With all my heart. I put in a lot of effort, and it paid off. I love this quilt. (BTW – it’s the same pattern as this one.)
As I mentioned in my post on Tuesday, I used this quilt as an opportunity to practice some things that I had learned at a binding class last weekend. Wow! It looks so amazing.
See the brown piping? See how it completely frames the quilt and makes it “pop”? See how it’s awesome?!?
In case you hadn’t already guessed, this quilt was for a baby girl. I think the next quilt I make is going to have to be for me, because I want one. It’s almost heartbreaking to give them away. I have an easier time justifying spending the money if it’s a gift but don’t want to “waste” it on me. So that needs to change. I am thinking a blanket for our living room – maybe a twin size for snuggling. And I know the quilt store is having a fabric sale soon. Hmmm……
