My giraffe has feet, a tail and spots. He has a long neck and is very friendly.
I had to make the head twice since this was a pattern written by a lady which I had never followed her patterns before. Once I understood her way of writing a pattern I was happy to make the head again.
This guy quickly became popular in my office. Apparently I work with many giraffe lovers! I may have to make more.

Well I guess I should really start back in the summer. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining bright and it was definitely pool weather. I went over to my in laws to swim while the men were working on the deck. My niece was there (she is 8) and so we swam together and she was reading a story to herself while I crocheted. She asked if I could make something for her... so that is how Rariyo came to be.
So I was working on my monkey... on the bus today (I wonder what my bus patrons think of me) and realized I forgot to put the safety eyes on before closing up his head. Luckily I had not cut the string off yet, so I untied his head and got those really cool eyes in! Yay!
Shhh don't tell her, these will be her Christmas presents!

Crochet projects go with me everywhere; on the bus, in the car, waiting at appointments, on the couch or at friends houses. I have a Mary Poppins Purse that i have reserved just for crocheting so it's constantly filled with yarn, patterns, hooks, scissors, stuffing, buttons and all sorts of odds and ends.
Taa Daa, the purse:
I really like it since it have two pockets on the front. I normally have the hook for my current project in the pocket on the left (possibly more than one) and my phone, earphones and bus pass in the pocket on the right. This way my phone does not get scratched by crochet hooks but everything has it's place.
