Who gives a hoot?

Although I haven't finished all the spots for the Ladybug Jacket yet, I've had to take sometime to whip up another birthday present. I almost forgot about this one and it sneaked up on me.

I won't say who it's for until later (though if she reads this blog, she'll know right away!)

The pattern is Owlie Mitts (it's a freebie and there's a sock version too). They are knitting up pretty quick (I'm past the cuff on the second one right now) and I love the use of beads for the eyes.

I'm using  House Cat in Denim that I had left over from a pair of Dave's socks. I've chosen a nice little Topaz bead from the stash for the eyes.

I've made a few mods, but I'll detail them in the FO post - which should be in a day or two!.
