woollen woods

Tomorrow opens the only "Woollen Wood" in Northern Ireland, at the Diamond Jubilee Wood at Whitehead. The Woollen Woods, part of Voluntary Arts Week, is an outdoor art installation, which is bringing art and nature together. On display will be all sorts of knitted, crocheted or felted woodland themed items.
My contribution to the flora and fauna which will be on display is an owl.....

He is based on the pattern, Obligatory Owl designed by Sara Elizabeth Kellner. This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download, for more details click here
I had great fun knitting him up. He is knitted in the round and the "Obligatory Owl" is a nice clear pattern to follow.

Woollen Woods is happening in eleven sites across the country, during May, to find one near you, click here.
Have a great weekend, Ali.
