Ok, since I've been out of pocket for a while, I thought I would come back to the blog with a bang. I have such a fun knitted project that I have been dying to share with you. Even though this project has been completed for a while, I had to wait to share it with you until it was sent across the world. Literally.
My sister moved to Thailand this past spring and is teaching third grade at a local Thai school. Even though I miss her terribly, I am so excited that she has finally found her dream job! I am certainly thankful for skype, and the fact that I can even call her on skype from my iPhone. Anyway, she has an affinity for giraffe. I'm not sure where this love originally started – whether in her travels to Africa or from the hundreds of giraffe gifts she has gotten from my mom. Regardless, she loves giraffe. I visited a giraffe center in Kenya this past June, but I don't love them as much as she does.
So, since I missed her, and I had acquired a new knitting book, I thought I would make her a little giraffe stuffed animal.
This is a partially completed picture from when we went to the Sugar Grove Music Festival. I so desperately wanted to share this picture with you, but I knew it would ruin the surprise!
Here is my ravelry post with notes.
