I'm Kathleen, and I make a lot of owls.
I learned to crochet (taught [and later re-taught] by my very patient mother) as a kid, and then relearned in 2008. In 2010, when I got more serious about it, the first owls were born. They were smaller than the current owls, and a lot less refined looking. And beads. They also had beads.
As I keep making these guys every Craft Fair Season, they keep evolving---new techniques (I'm re-exploring the beads), different yarn and colour combinations---and each one has its own face and personality that surprise me as it comes together.
I hope you like them as much as I do! I'd love to make you a custom one. Feel free to contact me through Zibbet, or by email at email@example.com
