Ophelia Owl Hat

This is my favorite combo so far...

This has dark grey and light grey... though it's hard to tell in the photos

I'm having trouble articulating certain parts of this pattern so it makes sense in words without a thousand photos. Not sure how long it will take me to make a comprehensive pattern here... hrmmm... Also, I decided on Ophelia for the girl hat, but not sure about the boy version... Oliver, Olaf, Otto, Oscar... any votes? any other options?

Making things once again

Hold the press... I also started making stuff again. I'm planning to sell things at the Art & Espresso at the Swabian Inn Oct 14-16th, so I figured I better bust my buns, or my hands rather, heh. This is one of three nursing covers I made this week. (the others are double sided!)
And I'm making Owl hats again! I've altered the old pattern, that I never finished, a bit and took more photos. I decided to crochet eyes rather than sew on buttons that can become a choking hazard, Silas pulled one of his nearly off the other day but I cut it loose before tragedy struck. I should be able to have a hard copy of a pattern with two sizes at least, by the end of the month. I just finished this guy today and am already over half way done with another in a different color scheme. I really love these hats!
