Tu-whit Tu-whoo

"Otto Owl is a great thinker. I believe he is thinking now.
He gets his best thoughts, however, sat in a tree with friends"
(from And So to Bed: Hand Knits and Things by Lucinda Guy)

When I saw this pattern for an Otto Owl Toy I knew I just had to make it for Little Roo, mainly because;

  1. He's a bit of a night owl, wanting to be the last person up and then sleeping in in the morning.
  2. He looks a bit owly, big blue eyes and a solemn look on his face when he is thinking
  3. And then there's the name ...
I'm really pleased at how my little owl turned out and especially pleased to have been able to borrow the pattern book from my local library. I didn't know whether I would want to buy the book until I had seen it, but now I have seen it I definitely want to buy it and knit everything in it!

Sweet dreams my little owl boy and happy (belated) wishes for turning 6 months x


  1. He's cute. I love the teeny scarf too.

  2. He's actually 7.5 months - but the Owl took a while to make ....!
