Just showin' and sharin' today!!
I crocheted a giraffe for my wee grandson Eli. I've been at it since January, It's finally done and turned out toddler sized literally! I am, as I discovered a very loose crocheter and therefore I think it's a bit bigger than expected LOL, but somehow quirky and so ugly it's cute! Laugh if it lightens your day!!
I got the book Edward's Menagerie as a birthday gift from my daughter and wanted to try crocheted animals (amirgurami). This is my first attempt, I'm not discouraged, I will keep trying to perfect my stitching. I tried standard sized. Next time I will try the smallest one!!
The book is wonderful and there are lots of size and animal choices and the instructions were excellent Kerry Lord ( the author) obviously knows her stuff if she can explain it to me, it can be explained to anyone.
The description of the book is as follows:
These cute animals with larger-than-life personalities are made using simple crochet techniques and the step-by-step instructions enable a complete beginner to get hooking straight away. Each animal also has a universal pattern where you can change your hook and yarn to create four different sizes, making 160 different possibilities.
The book is shown below.
Like "Elf on the Shelf", "Jimmy" the Giraffe, keeps showing up in different places in our house! Time to ship him to BC. I think eventually Eli will love him!!
Happy Tuesday ?
