Owl and Pussy Cat Mittens

Inspired by these Owl Mittens shown on ABDPBT Commodity Fetishism, I set out to make some for Cha Cha.  I used Kate Gilbert's "Gifted" mitten pattern and then embellished as needed.  For the owl, only work the "first half" of the finger decreased so as to be left with a flap for one half of the fingers.  Extend that flap for a few rows of garter then decrease evenly on each side to make a point.  When you fold that down, you get the owl face.  These mods are far from perfected, but Cha Cha loves them!
