You might remember seeing this adorable owl on Lisa Spangler's blog early last year (this post is looong overdue!). Her name is Olympia and Lisa sent her to me when I sent her this fun felted flower. Well, soon after Olympia came to live with me, I was inspired to learn crochet. I know how to knit, so it wasn't too much of a stretch to pickup crochet. Within a few weeks - Olympia had a friend... soooo meet Hedwig!
Not too bad for my first crochet project! It was fun, but I don't think I'll be tackling too many other projects like this anytime soon. Just like with knitting, I found that my hands tensed up from working too long. Does that happen to you?
