Creepy Hooty Owl finished
Hooty and Robin King (and NeedleDeeva, of course) were featured in the most recent issue of Needlepoint Now. You may have noticed that the current canvases differ in color from the one Robin stitched. It's not uncommon for production canvases to vary from the pre-production canvases, causing bits (or more) of havoc for the stitch guide author.
I chose to follow the colors Robin used, especially for the background. This meant that I had to use a full coverage stitch--basketweave. I used Silk Lame' and needed a card plus part of another--so make sure you buy 2 10 yard skeins or cards if you decide to change the canvas background color.
I can't wait for the next "Creep" to arrive!
