A Giraffe in Progress


This giraffe has been a labor of love.  (I think the mother of its tiny owner feels the same way about him/her.) With bouts of tendonitis flaring up, it has taken me WAY longer than I originally planned.  But it is just so cute, and I feel a surge of arm feel-goodness coming on and am hoping to have it done by Sunday. After that, I can actually knit something else!  Yay!

(Is this a super-short blog post?  Why, yes it is.  But apparently my readership can't get enough of my ridiculously interesting blogging.  They just want more.  Is there stitch by stitch narration coming soon?  Maybe...)

    1. He now has all four legs attached, but my arms are done. Maybe NEXT Sunday... :)

  2. Happy Friday! Hope the Knitters Elbow has cleared up! The Giraffe is darling. I haven't made toys in ages, not since my sophomore-in-high-school niece was a toddler. They're usually good warm-weather knitting, since there's not a huge pile of yarn on the lap. Starting yesterday, I have a week of health provider visits scheduled, so maybe I can get some knitting or better yet de-stashing done soon.

    1. Thanks so much for the comment, CeltChick! The elbow is certainly getting better. I really can't complain! How long have you been knitting?

  3. Let's see -- I took up crochet during my chemotherapy, which was about 14.5 years ago. I'd hesitated about learning to knit, figuring two sticks would be harder to handle than one (but crochet is harder on the wrist!). I gues it took me a good three years to figure out that I'm a knitter, so I've been knitting about 10 years. I don't see me stopping anytime soon! In the interests of full disclosure, today I'm wearing a brace on my right hand & wrist -- too much of a good thing, I guess!
