Owl Eyeglass Holder

Last year I was overwhelmed at the response to my Owl Eyeglass Holder. Because some crocheters aren’t familiar with the crocodile stitch, this week I created a video tutorial. This is a simple project for learning the crocodile stitch, and the owl is just so darn cute! Originally it was designed as an eyeglass holder, but it also makes a cute little plush toy.

Wow! February in South Texas went out like a lion this year. The Snowpocalypse took us by surprise.

He doesn’t usually like the cold, so I was surprised to see him jumping around eating snow. https://www.tiktok.com/@myfingersfly/video/6929576274033691909?lang=en&is_copy_url=0&is_from_webapp=v2&sender_device=pc&sender_web_id=6936262251352638982
