Owl Afghan

   It seems to be that season in my life when friends and relatives are getting married. Hopefully I can keep up on afghans. This one pleased me more than usual. I like it so much that I didn't even mind fidgeting with French knots for the owl eyes.

   The afghan is adapted from Margaret MacInnis' Waffling Owl Afghan block, which is a free Ravelry download. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn, and the drape is beautiful. I knit the blocks in 4 strips of 5 squares each, and I added seed stitch to the side edges of the blocks.

The wedding is today.
Blessings to the happy couple!
