Hoot, Hoot...

Isn't that the sound these guys make ;)

A cute, easy gift to make. Good for using leftover yarn with and let alone a good way to practice cabling, especially without a needle. :)

These are fun to knit. I did knit the HH one with dpn's and gosh...it kinda stunk. Had to keep tightening up the stitches on the dpns. Figured out my problem and then switched to magic loop. Much better all the way around then.
