Whooooooo R U??

Lot's of whoooing going on around here!  I swear I am starting to like owls now, spot them everywhere. My last spinning swap pal loved them.

As well as a fellow knitter here.  She did not know if boy or girl, but she wanted everything owly...

So in addition to the soakers, I whipped these burp cloths up!

Here's a stack of them! I used this tutorial!  We met wee baby Caleb yesterday (1 week old!) and the top one is in use.  I forgot how little babies are!
Owl Diaper burp cloths
Flannel works great and I washed both the diapers and the flannel and used a bit of vinegar in the flannel load to help with possible dye runoff.

So, see these cute owls here.  I was going to use this fabric for the above burp cloths, but found out the flannel is much better.

My LQS (local quilt shop) where I hung out a bit prior to full time working was collecting pillowcases for various charities.  Last year I think I sewed 20 or so.  It was fun finding the solids to match.

Any Dr. Who fans???
Enter the Tardis colorway!!  Soon to be n-plied on a wheel near me soon ;)  Sock yarn here I come...stripey sock yarn!
