The Owlie Mitts are done.

This was a really sweet, quick knit. It wasn't difficult, and it kept my interest. I love the use of beads for the eyes - it adds just a little bit of sparkle.

I made a couple of small mods:
1) The middle cables all go in the same direction, instead of zig-zagging as the pattern calls for (this was just me not paying attention to the chart
2) I changed the placement of the thumb a little for a better fit.
3) I shortened the top by four rows - the mitts were getting really long!

These were knit in House Cat, colour is Denim, but it's one of those patterns that would look good in almost any colour.

And don't forget - use the code Madness20 in the shop and save 20% all week! 
 Get some yarn before they drive Mom crazy!

I was a little concerned by the post title ... kinda wondering where this was going and how knitting was involved :)

Those kids look like trouble with a capital T. Looks like the sale will last a few more days yet!
