It’s been a while since I’ve managed a Finished Object but here is one I’m happy with, this is Chutney and he’ll be heading to my nephew when I next see him. Artemis was really excited when she saw him so I think I’m going to have to make one for her too now!

FO Friday: Jip the Owl

IMG_6790 (30%)

Back in January my sister asked me to make an owl for some friends of hers expecting a baby later in the year. They love owls, they like purple and silver, so this little fellow emerged!

I used Stylecraft Special DK in Wisteria, Silver and a smidgeon of Saffron. A couple of small pieces of felt and some 9mm safety eyes for the eyes 🙂

I decided not to do the feet and tail as it was going to be for a newborn, who would eventually grow into a baby who gums everything then a toddler who chews everything and I didn’t want to have too much on there that they could chew at and risk pulling off!

November plans

I have things that I need to get done today but between a new baby rat sleeping on me and my lone rat sleeping on me, I can’t get them done. So I’m on here instead! But, here is a photo of the baby rat, her name is Sikozu and she’ll be joining our girls ASAP.

I said last night that I’d post about my plans for next month, they are as follows:

  1. Finish the Catan Blanket Hexes
  2. Attempt NaNoWriMo

That’s basically it. I have a fanfiction idea that I’ve been playing with for a long while that really needs writing down, I haven’t written anything since I was a teen so this should be interesting! I also want to get Nick’s blanket done in time for Christmas instead of slacking, so my goals this month consist of two very big, creativity-based projects.
