FO: Chunky Owl Boot Cuffs

When I bought the yarn for the bunny slippers,  I wasn’t sure how much I’d need, so I bought too balls. And I’m glad  I did because it gave me enough for another fair entry.

Cute chunky owls for the Boot Cuff category. The pattern is the aptly named Owl Boot Cuffs, and it was a fun little pattern that knit up super quick.

I’ve made owls with cables before, and it never ceases to delight me.

That is until I have to sew on all those button eyes. I don’t know why… but I hate sewing buttons. And there are 24 between the pair (and isn’t it amazing that I had exactly that many gold ones in my stash?!?). But I powered through it. And as you can see… it was totally worth it!

    Those owls are so cute! Definitely worth sewing all those buttons on. The chance of having enough buttons on hand is amazing. You must have quite a collection of fair entries by now. I see lots of blue ribbons in your future.
