Knitting a forest…

Meet The Owl Brigade…

Knitted Owl 1

This knitted barn owl has just joined the crew… I made her yesterday.

I have been really enjoying getting up at 6 am every morning lately. I just knit, while drinking tea and looking out the big glass doors in front of my table.

This morning I was knitting while watching the robins getting in and out of the ivy…

You may have guessed by now… Yes, I knitted a mushroom today…

And yes, I took my newly made owl and my mushroom out with me for a sunset stroll, to show them around the neighbourhood…

I’ll introduce you to more knitted friends shortly…

  1. The owl in its cosy nest is adorable. I’m curious about whether you left the woolly fungi in the woods? A few years ago my aunt started “yarn bombing” her village. I don’t think she’s confessed yet that it’s her whose doing it.

    • No I brought it back home and put it in my spider plant… Funnily enough I’ve been thinking a lot about yarn bombing lately (my auto correct had me typing gran bombing… ahem…).
      I have been reading a book about it which gave me a lot of ideas for a few spots in my town… I will be doing it very soon, I find the idea very exciting :)
      Your aunt is such a heroin! I don’t know if i could keep it secret for very long…
      This mushroom is my prototype, I experimented quite a bit with it before I came up with version I am fairly happy with (yes, it took me all day…).
      I spent a while finding the right shades… I eventually decided to use this old yarn that I had dyed myself a few months ago, using… mushrooms as a dye :D

      • I look forward to reading about your yarn or gran bombing antics. My aunt started “decorating” her village probably over a decade ago now. She sneaks out in the middle of the night to do it. I’m sure some of the approving villagers have spotted her but it’s a marvel none of the disapproving ones have. She has even sat in community meetings where the “issue” has been tabled for discussion and maintained a poker face. Last time I checked she still had not been outed or confessed.

      • Hahaha! and at the meetings was she telling them how much of a disgrace it was that some hooligans would commit such acts of vandalism in such a pretty village? :D
