Knit Owl

One thing that I am very good at is procrastination.  I try very hard to overcome this and not pass this bad habit on to my children.  As you can see here, I am not always successful.  Here is my short tale of how this owl came to be.

One fine evening, two days before I had to have my local community club meeting minutes completed, I sat down at the computer.  I checked my mail, looked online and finally shut it down.  I did not even take out my notes....

I looked around the house, thought about all the laundry that needed to be done and toilets to be cleaned and then went to bed.

Insomnia hit at this point, likely because I knew I should be more productive.  Finally, deciding I better do something I opened up my brand new book, Amigurumi Animal Friends, picked up my knitting needles and some left over yarn and set to work.  I completed most of this adorable owl that night.  The rest I sneaked in over the next couple days because I just had to finish it.

As for the minutes.  I woke up at 4am to work on them.  No pain no gain?
