Now im making Big Owl lol
And i think its going to be big indeed lol! Im using Chunky yarn and I have a feeling this is going to be a big owl lol! And I love the colours! I have to say though knitting with chunky makes me knit slower - boo.

Maybe it's the rare Giant Owl? I'm not a fan of chunky yarns. Those big needles hurt my hands after awhile. It's kind of like knitting with bats.

The problem with knitting with bats is that they keep trying to hang from the ceiling all day and fly away at night.

I find using huge needles awkward, haven't used them enough to know if they're a pain too. Yeah, kind of like knitting with bats...baseball, I mean.

Big Owl in progress!
Love the colours? I do! :-) I think baby girl's gonna love it!

I probably should have used circs with Big Owl. its not so much the hand pain - not getting much, though; its more of carrying the weight of the knitting. and it is slighly awkward yes. lol. Oh well. never mind :-)
