Owls for my Peep II

"T" was born on May 22, 2013
"T" belongs to a dear, dear friend and colleague of mine.
"T's" mother made a huge difference in my life this last year and for that I will be forever grateful.
This is for him.
See this post for a summary of directions on "how to".
Probably suited more for an intermediate crocheter.
This one did not have a border and the feet were crocheted 
to the owl instead of the stem.
And as the photos indicate -the joining stitch on the owl body 
should have been placed under the beak or at the top.
I must have been in too big of a hurry to complete it the evening he was born.
The moral of the crochet story:
Haste makes weird things come out of owl beaks. ;-)

    1. The colors were different for me. I started without the turquoise and frogged it after it was about 1/3 of the way done and then added the turquoise stripe - I am so glad I did. So thoughtful of you to be interested and to stop by. Thank you.
