We’ve been out of town visiting and spending time with our extended family for Thanksgiving. I wanted to bring some yarn and hooks along with me but I didn’t have much room in my suitcase. Lion Brand Bonbon yarn came to my rescue! Cut little mini skeins of yarn were the perfect size and offered a variety of colors. I grabbed the “Celebration” color scheme since it was festive for the holidays and I ended up making these little Christmas owls perched on a candy cane! Hang them from your tree or gift them to friends!
