starting small ...

This is my first post in the year 2016, so

Happy New Year !

(I think it's still allowed to say that
though the year isn't brand new anymore)

My creative year is starting small,
small knitting in fact.
A friend showed such a fun pattern on FB
that I promised myself I would knit some of these
little owls

Number one !

How small it is ???

This small    ;-)

And because it is quite simple to make
I started the next one right away

For the Dutch readers who want to try too
here is the pattern.

And while I was busy with my needles
Man was busy with his pencils

getting some good advice of our youngest grandchild.

My two friends who were doing some serious felting
just before christmas, finished their work today :
another fun day with talk, coffee, tea, lunch,
and a lot of elbow grease !

In the end we were very satisfied with the two
(very different) end results

( ... though it looks like not everyone agreed ...)
