Not headlice...heh heh no knits with a K. Aren't these the most gorgeous knitted owls in the world? Not that I've made an extensive study but I'm pretty sure. My friend Karen made these for me from a vintage pattern I found for her on the web. There are three on the pattern (a family....sweet) but I just have mother and baby owl so far. They are cushions but I don't sit on them because I couldn't look at them across the room if I did and I don't want to squash them.
