I got an OWL!!!!!

What a kit I really love it all. I has everything, yarn, needles, bags, notebooks, pattern and much much more.
I absolutely love the bags, and the buttons are a perfect touch. I didn't get a very good picture of the lion that she knit for me but it is so cute!!
There were owls hand drawn all over the box and I love them too. What a great touch. Thank you so much!!

Sorry this has been so late coming but I have been out of town and then had to do a whole lot of make up work. I have been a very bad student during this time also and thought I should offer my house an apology for my lack of posting.
