Wishing I Was Wise

Well, I am now back in my dorm room facing another semester of college. This semester, I'm taking a lot of great classes that I'm really excited about. Against all odds, I am finding macroeconomics unbelievably interesting and enjoyable. I'm hoping this is the beginning of the end for my quest for what I want to do with the rest of my life. Slowly but surely, I am narrowing down what interests me and what inspires me to work hard and go the extra mile to not just understand but to analyze what I'm learning.

Fortunately, before I left I was able to complete a crochet project for my friend's birthday. She loves owls and I saw these great crocheted owls in New York City. You can see them here: link.



I thought they were so cute and though immediately of her, but of course I didn't buy one. So when her birthday came around I decided I would try to make my own for her. (Besides handmade is always a bit better, right?)

Pattern: Improvised
Ravelry: Link


I crocheted the body and the eyes. The rest was done by embroidery and embellishment. Then I stuffed him with polyfill.




Maybe some of the owl's wisdom will rub off on me for this next semester?

Hopefully he speaks Spanish.

¡AdiĆ³s!
