There is always a sense of pride when a project is complete but also a bit of sadness. This was such a fun CAL to do. It was designed as a stash buster and really put a dent in my stash. I must admit that I did purchase 2 additional skeins as the blanket grew larger but overall the yarn was stash. I love owls and that is what drew me to the CAL to start with. I am very pleased with the results and love that she winks!
