2011 Fall Challenge - Owls!


The 2011 fall challenge was a fun project: 


Crocheting miniature owls!


    The pattern for the owl is developed by
Suzette Lenzen and is available at her blog knitandcurl.

There were some rules for the challenge,
- No changes to the pattern - only exact stitches and rows as Suzette developed the pattern.
- At least 3 owls of different sizes, but no more than 6 owls in total.

It has been great fun to see all these different owls being born, all so very unique and creative.
We now have a great variety of birds in this forest!

After voting (which was not an easy thing) the places were very close, but these three contributions was voted winners:

First place

Third place

This was so much fun and I feel like I won even though I wasn't in the winners list. We are winners because we keep on doing our craft. We create what's in our heart. Thank you for letting me be a part of all of this and sharing with all of you.
