Hello everyone! Today is my last day of the school holidays (sigh with sadness) and it's back to work tomorrow. I thought that I would take the chance to get a short blog post in before I get stuck into some school work today. I have been busy crocheting several baby gifts these holidays and one type of project that I wanted to make was an amigurumi giraffe. It was a bit time intensive for me as my stitch count was off at times and I had to redo rounds a few times but I finished it and I couldn't be happier! The blanket it is sitting on is also part of the gift so I can't wait to give it to my dear friend once he becomes a grandparent. I followed the tutorial on The Crochet Crowd. As I was following the video tutorial, it helped me a lot with learning to read the pattern.

Here are some close ups..

I used Marvel 8 ply wool and a 4mm crochet hook to complete my project. The safety eyes I bought from Spotlight.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
