One of the best things about crochet is its versatility. I know many people love knitting and don't get me wrong I like it too. But when it comes to make adorable pieces like these, knitting just can't compete. :-)
This little kitty may stay here or be part of tomorrow's give-away. I haven't decided yet. I get so attached to these little critters. I think I will just have to make another one for myself.
As for the owl cozy, this is my first attempt at branching out my crochet. I have long stuck to very traditional crochet using only yarn and buttons as embellishments. But then I discovered a couple of designers on Ravelry that were incorporating beads, buttons, fabric and embroidery in their work. The result is so whimsical and personal it was exactly what I was looking for. The missing piece as it were to what I have been doing. This cozy is destined for tomorrow's give-away. In fact its the sole reason I made it. I will have to take a few moments to jot down the directions for the owl pieces before the party. I hope whomever wins this tomorrow falls in love with it as much as I have.
