Grace's Birthday Makes

For Grace for her birthday, I made three presents for her. 

Firstly, I made some fingerless gloves - she loves fingerless gloves. 

The hand model is Eve - you can tell by the wild nail polish!

If you look closely at the gloves you can see the cable details look like owls - Grace loves owls! 

I used sequins and tiny beads to form the eyes for one owl on each glove.

The pattern is called Owlings and is by Kerrie James.  It's knitted in the round on DPNs with minimal shaping.  The pattern is available for free, here

I also made Grace some teeny tiny owlets.  These are crocheted and are very quick and easy to make.  I used 4 ply yarn to keep them small and embroidered the eyes. 

I've made these owls before for Grace - 2 years ago - using Dk yarn and buttons for eyes. 

The pattern is by Brigette Read and is available for free, here

Lastly, I knitted a vest for Grace.  Very colourful. 

No owls in this design but if you look closely you can see she is wearing an owl brooch!

This is a pattern I have designed myself - a great way to use up odds and ends. 

The colour scheme is random and the vest is worked in DK yarn. 

I'll type up the pattern as quickly as I can and share it with you. 

Grace had a wonderful birthday and loved all her presents - I still can't believe she's 20.
