Back to school time, owls were everywhere. There were owl inspired blankets, key chains, hats, mitts, coasters and toys....basically, you name it and there was an owl for that!
I was looking for a really cute owl hat to make for my son back in
September. I came across this super cute pattern by Rhondda Mol, owner of
Ommbawaka Design, and I fell in love with it immediately, it's such a cute
hat. I crocheted it up on one of our trips home from Windsor, On
(visiting the grandparents). I asked my eldest to model the hat for me
because I was making the hat for him; he told me he didn't like it very much
because he was afraid the kids at school would make fun of him for wearing
it. I told him if he wore it for one day and he really didn't like it, I
wouldn't make him wear it after that and I would give the hat to someone
else. After school on Monday I asked if he wanted me to give the hat
away, he forcefully replied "No way!!" I asked him what changed
his mind and he said "All the girls think I'm really cute with it
on!" It was so funny!! The hat turned out to be such a hit at
school (especially with all the little girls). He has worn this hat almost
every day since October 2013. Now he switches between his Poke’ball hat
and his Not Another Owl Hat hat depending on the weather (the Not Another Owl
Hat is super warm).
