FO Friday: Whoooo’s There?

In addition to working on my bloom and afghan, this past week I’ve knocked out a few quick projects. I discovered the pattern for these Owl Puffs last year. I’m hooked! They are so cute and fun!

C’mon! How cute is that?

I tell you, they’re addicting! Each one takes me just a couple of hours start to finish and uses about 20 yds of yarn. They are great stashbusters. The puffs can be made with any weight of yarn and any sized needles. Here are a few I finished a while ago:

In the above picture, the two bottom owls are worsted weight. In the top photo, the yarns left to right are DK, super-bulky, and worsted. I made two owls using super-bulky as gifts for toddlers, so rather than using saftey eyes, I crocheted eyes.

What to do with them? Well, I’ve given them away as gifts. Some are scattered around my apartment. They would make fun cat toys or beanbags. I’m thinking of leaving them in random places as a sort of yarn bombing.  😉

Also, this wouldn’t be a Finished Object post during Lent without a gratuitous bread photo. I made three loaves, but forgot to photograph the second one.

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend!
