I have a new neighbor, he was born last week. His parents are fun and smart and great additions to our community. We can’t visit this little guy because COVID but that doesn’t mean I didn’t knit something for him to say welcome to the world.
It’s an owlie sleep sack. So cute, right?
His parents are very environmentally conscious people, raising bees and ducks and I figured having their new little guy look like he was snuggled up with an owl would be right up their alley.
The yarn is something I had, the ball band was lost long ago. The pattern is here. And those eyes, well, they weren’t technically recommended, but they really make the owls pop. And truly, he’s an infant and his parents are smart enough to not leave him alone in this thing. I also said I’d happily remove them if they prefer.
I hope this little knitted gift, complete with a couple of sleepers, has provided a nice welcome home to our littlest neighbor.
