One of the things I do to amuse myself when working on tiny owls is to ponder what kind of yarn I'll use next. I haven't purchased any brand new yarn for this project, so I've been using bits and ends of old skeins. It's fun to try to match the different colors I've collected. I don't have to do it that way, but it makes it more challenging, which makes it more interesting to me. It also has the added bonus of making every single tiny owl unique.
