Twit Twoo

Yesterday I went on my monthly trip to my local wool shop.
It's like being a child in a sweet shop when I'm there, I save my money all month so I can go and get most of the colours and variety's that I want.
They have a really great website too, with I think fair and reasonable prices.
Oh this occasion I was greeted by a lovely helpful lady who couldn't do enough to help, I've spoken to three different members of staff there and they all couldn't be nicer which makes such a huge difference.
On this trip I bought some of my usual DK wool in bright colours and some gorgeous Viking eco alpaca wool (a treat from my very kind partner)
I love the unusual colour  Mauve 468. It's wonderfully soft and cosy. I thought perfect for a snuggly  scarf. I've started hooking the scarf I was in two minds at first whether to knit or crochet.
I love the look of a simple double crochet so I decided on that in the end. 
Will keep you posted on my progress.
So after shopping till I was dropping I came home and hooked a couple of hootie owls!
I'm a huge fan of this ladies blog and have followed many of her tutorials when I saw these lovely owls I had to give them a go....
Here they are I made one and had to make another!

My Daughter has claimed one already!

Such a brilliant tutorial easy to follow and clear instructions

They were so fun to make....I think I might be addicted!
Many thanks again to Jacquie
