There are many cute amigurumi owls made my talented crocheters, so here is my winged contribution to the owly collective...

My friend, David, and I were big fans of Twin Peaks, the early-nineties TV series that featured cherry pies, logs, and owls. A popular catchphrase from the show: "the owls are not what they seem".

Over the holidays, I made HooWoo the Owl for David:

It took half an hour in the winter rain to set up this photoshoot before HooWoo dove off the tree, bounced off some bushes and landed in mud. I had to reshoot on the following rain-free day.

Beware of those mischievous owls! They are not what they seem:

For the die-hard Twin Peaks fans, here is a 9-minute video of the 1992 Twin Peaks Festival that David and I attended:

He's so cute! You're friend's very lucky. Did you use your own pattern?

On a twin peaks/crafty side note (never seen it myself) it also popped up in the OTT 20 swap in the form of a log http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286835.msg3261236;topicseen#msg3261236

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Great job. I think you got the colours and eyes to look perfectly.
