I found this pattern on ravelry! It's FREE! Yay! I love owls!
I had a hard time deciding what type of eyes I wanted for my owls. Googly, buttons, beads? Hmmmm.....
I ended up choosing brown vintage beads from the 70s. I thought that they would be appropriate since owls were especially popular at that time. I used a 1980s vintage acrylic yarn for the mittens, I got from a garage sale a while back. [When I bought the yarn it still had the label, but I have since lost it :-( ] It only took me 2 days to knit the mittens. Hurray, instant gratification!
