Sheepy and Owly welcome another new friend!

Meet Kirby!

Kirby Nooshka stuffed handmade sewn owl plush toy

I received him today courtesy of Nooshka and the Salad for Breakfast blog. He's so totally adorable, and you know I love owls... I think I may be starting a collection.

He came to me all the way from Australia, inside a perfectly charming package. Wrapped in brown paper, tied with a ribbon, and a sweet handwritten poem...

Owly was a bit suspicious of Kirby at first...

Thank you Nooshka and SaladforBreakfast for giving me this absolutely adorable plushie! I totally love him. To pass on some giveaway karma, I will hold my own giveaway starting tomorrow. Stay tuned for details. If this giveaway is successful, I will hold other giveaways in the future. :)

By the way, if you are here from Daily Knitter, welcome! I hope you will stick around. :) I love to talk about my knitting and I LOVE to talk about yarn! My Alethiometer Mitts knitting pattern was featured as the pattern of the day today. If you enjoyed that pattern, I also have a pattern for sale, Three Sachets, and I will be publishing another free knitting pattern on my blog within the next month or so - a sock pattern this time. :)
