I just finished with 2 hours to spare!  Cheesy I present to you Albert (pronounced the French way) the Owlbear. (click images for larger versions)









Albert is a gift for my husband who loves owlbears.

I used 1.75 skeins of Paton's Allure, felt for the face and assorted feathers.  I might do some embroidery to his face a little later to make black outlines but I'm not sure yet.  The pattern is a jumble of things-  I started out using the directions for Kate from Knitty only backwards to start with the head and then I did basic raglan increases like I was making a top down sweater to get the arms and then did like for a glove for the legs.  He is completely seamless with the exception of his little tail which I had to sew on.

He's not quite as ferocious as a real owlbear but he is loved just the same Wink I wish my pictures of him where better but it's late and the sun had gone to bed.  I think I might too now that my little buddy is done.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
