This Week's Favorites - Owls

Hello crafty friends!!!

Owls are very present here where I live, we can see them in the telephone poles and wires when the sun starts to set and we can hear them through the night! Recently they have been very active and we can hear them vocalizing a lot and on several occasions it seams to be more than one!

Inspired by this rise in owl activity I though I would share with you some of my favorite amigurumi owls! =)

Free Amigurumi Pattern: Rudolph Christmas Reindeer

Oh wow! This is my first holiday season since BuddyRumi began and I never thought things would get so crazy! I heard about it, I read about it, but living it is a totally different thing!

So as you might have guessed by my little vent above, I've been swamped in crochet this month! The hook is practically a sixth finger by now. So because of this extra busyness this month I'm going to relax a bit in terms of posting as regularly on the blog, but every time I've got some news I'll pop in and let you know! 

Today I bring you the pattern for Rudolph, the cutest reindeer ever!
