Someone recently reminded me that I had promised to knit a giraffe.
So here is my giraffe:
A version with a few (white) spots is in the works. But I actually like the simplicity of this version, even if it would be teased by any real giraffe that came its way. Poor little spotless giraffe!
This toy also gave me the opportunity to do a little “hair” embellishment that seemed somewhat vintage to me, though maybe it’s still often used and I just haven’t noticed it.
By the way, the books in the photos have been sitting in these piles for weeks, waiting to be taken to the Salvation Army. Of those pictured, I recommend The Alienist and The Blind Assassin (actually barely cropped out of the pictures) as good summer reads.
