My (not so) Itty Bitty Blue Giraffe

Another Itty Bitty toy is complete! I am loving knitting Susan's designs. The patterns are so well written and easy to follow. There is minimal finishing, so you don't have to worry about wonky seams (or, if you are like me, spend ages getting them "just right" which may mean redoing them 2 or 3 or 5 or 6 times....) Instead, after you cast off the last stitch, you finish the last bit of stuffing, sew on the arms, legs, head, and any embellishments and voila!.... an almost perfect finshed projet!

So, here he is....My version of the giraffe from Itty Bitty Toys. Once again, I was in such a hurry to start, that I went stash diving for yarn. Not having traditional giraffe colors readily available, I chose to use some wonderfully soft Blue Sky Dyed Cotton in Sky and Periwinkle blues. I love this giraffe and how the colors compliment each other.... even if my husband did think it was a dinosaur....

  2. Isn't that dinosaur purple? He's definitely not the stylish blue of your stellar giraffe.... who simply compliments the chair he's sitting in beautifully. He's great. Good work!
