Wednesday is my crochet class day. There isn't one this week so I thought I'd experiment with shaped crochet and this little amigurumi owl is the result. He's probably heading for my Christmas tree. The beads I used for his eyes are stored in a glass chemist's vial with a cork lid. They have been there at least fifty years so these two must be quite glad to escape. I think it's just possible that this hoarding of craft stuff may have been inherited.
