Our family photographer is expecting her third child in a few weeks and asked me to knit a newborn-sized owl hat. With my love of owls and penchant for crafting for wee ones, I was thrilled. She specified the color palette and asked for ear flaps, but otherwise left it up to me. I looked around a bit on Etsy and combined some inspiration from there with my newborn hat pattern and some crocheted details.
I've been thinking that E. needs one too, but feel like making one this late in winter would be admitting that spring will never come. Maybe I'll revisit the idea this fall.
