Owl Goodies

Awhile ago Kate of O W L S sweater fame had a giveaway on her blog. Everyone who sent her a photo for her parliament of owls gallery went in the draw to win some gorgeous owl goodies. Kate generously gave me the "early bird prize" as I was the first person (other than her test knitters) to send her a photo! If you're thinking of knitting an OWLS , Kate's gallery is full of wonderful owl-ish inspiration.

Now I would love to be able to show you the goodies that Kate sent me for my prize but unfortunately the parcel went AWOL somewhere between Scotland and New Zealand. Kate generously sent me a replacement package...and when that was returned to her, she was kind enough to try for third time lucky! Lucky me and I am so pleased she did. I had pretty much forgotten all about the prize so receiving her package was very exciting!

A lovely project sized Owl tote (with little owl badge)

And inside... some beautiful Debbie Bliss pure silk , owl stickers and a notepad

Thank you so much Kate!! I love it all and I can't wait to knit something special with the silk. My current Wip is residing in the bag. I want to use the stickers myself so I've hidden them from my girls for the meantime!

Hoot Hoot!

damn missing packages! The first swap i did with a friend in the US, my package arrived having been opened and only one ball of yarn remained. No letter, no gifts, no nothing. I hope your package shows up, even though the replacement stuff is all very nice!

Awesome! I loved the owl and owlet you made, was very excited when the milo vest had an owl option for me to try :)
Loved the hat, button and all, too. I imagine your friend will be very happy with it - lucky lady to have a friend like you.
