Knitted owl with stripes

Knitted owl (Mr)

When I finish a craft project I usually feel a bit ‘meh’ for a couple of days because my hands are not busy. Last week I was feeling that way because I’d finished my Northmavine Hap. Although I didn’t have to wait long for my next crafty fix because a few days later I was given half a knitted owl kit!

The owl kit was made by a company called Twilley’s of Stamford and comes with everything you need to make 2 owls – a Mr and a Mrs. I had all the materials for a Mr Owl (cream body).

I stormed through this project like a piggie in an all you can eat buffet. It took me 2 evenings to complete from start to finish (the pattern used basic stitches and finished size was fairly small). I was making this in front of the TV and accidentally knitted the body length for Mrs owl instead of Mr owl because I wasn’t concentrating enough. But I’m happy with the way he turned out as you don’t really notice the mistake.

He needs a name, does anyone have any ideas?

  1. Wilbur? Or maybe Socrates is more fitting for a wise owl?

    No matter what you name him, he is adorable.

  2. They are adorable!

  3. Mr. Owl is just awesome!! I’m not too sure about names. Oscar is the first name that comes to mind.

  4. This might sound stupid, but how about “Owloysius”, a take on Owl and Aloysius.

  5. Aw I love him!! Popping by from the Yarn Along 🙂

  6. omg! so cute!!!!

  7. I’m partial to Oliver. He is very cute and great eyelashes!!

  8. Oh my he is divine. If he were my owl I would call him Percy!
    Have a beautiful week.

  9. What a great little kit! I love it when it’s all put together and I don’t have to go hunt for any of the finishings. I think he looks like a Winston.

  10. He is ruddy lovely! Deffo an Ollie! x

  11. He is so cute, I thought Ollie the owl or Oscar also came to mind x

  12. Mr. Owl is adorable. How about naming him “Hootie”.

  13. Thanks for all the name suggestions folks! 🙂
