I did it.
I completed the pattern I’ve been teasing you with. And guess what? It’s available for testing!
Meet York the Owl!
York is a small barn owl who is oh-so-proud of his royal lineage. Born into the York family of owls, he can trace his lineage back to owls belonging directly to Edward IV. He is greatly resentful of the pall cast upon his family name by birds of Lancastrian persuasion and it is his greatest hope to re-establish the preeminence of the Yorkist birds as the ruling class among the fowls. He is currently collecting literature on Richard III and the War of the Roses to compile a case defending the honor of the Yorkist clan. He hopes to publish his first book with help of his editor and assistant, who at this time wishes to remain anonymous. (Can you tell that I’ve been obsessed with Medieval and Tudor England?)
A small barn owl. In comparison to the rest of my toys, York is a little bitty guy. Don’t worry, I’ll be giving you some pics tomorrow or Friday with him sitting in some of the same spots as I’ve had Barry before. I’ll even have some comparison shots next to them, showing Barry there too. Just so you can have an idea of the size.
I have had a lot of fun with this little guy and he’s easily a 2 or 3 day crochet. And that includes breaks doing other things.
I hope to release his pattern for sale around the same time as Bastet’s release. I’ve never released two patterns for sale at once… I’ll have to think if that will be a good idea or not…
Anyway, those of you trying to guess what the new pattern was, did you guess right? Or did I catch you by surprise?
