Owl Diversity

I’ve discovered some fascinating things about owls these last couple of weeks. There’s more to them than meets the eye.


They are inquisitive.

Owl Looking for Love

They look for love.

Owl in Love

They are true.

Owl Couple

They make great companions.

Owl, Family of Two

Great parents, too.

Owl with Flowers

They like a little romance.

Owl the Hunter

They get hungry.

Owl the Vegetarian

Some are even vegetarian.

Owl Zombie

Unfortunately, they are just as susceptible to zombie attacks as we are.

Owl Knitter

But, most exciting of all, they know how to knit.

Felted Lineup

Yikes! It’s been a little while since my last post. We have been busy making stuff, and I will be sharing some of the goodies that have come to be these last couple of weeks (including some excellent mittens and a few pairs of socks). I thought I’d check in, though, and share with you a little of what I’ve been doing with some of my unspun fiber (oh, spinners out there, do not begrudge me this happy pastime).

Winter 2009 Felted Lineup

This is a small lineup of some of the creatures that have developed from some of the clouds of roving laying about the house. We’ve got some alpaca/mohair/merino blends, some polwarth, and I believe the dark brown bear is california variegated mutant. All fibers that would make excellent yarn (and they will, too, one day), but for now I am using them for other purposes (it’s hard when owls are cuter than yarn, and, honestly, more fun to watch take shape).

In addition, I can’t help but share a photo of the tool involved in the process.

Finishing Touches

It does an excellent job illustrating the fact that this Thursday I’ll be having my 3-month checkup, complete with bone marrow biopsy. I’m also hoping that, with the help of some premeds, I’ll be feeling as fuzzy as Mr. Bear. We’ll be getting results in the next couple of weeks. Keep your fingers (and toes) crossed the results are still quite resoundingly normal.
