Knitting Crush

Large Knit Toys

It’s safe to say, I love knitting.  LOVE IT!  I tend to knit stuff I can wear and I’ve been knitting a lot of gloves and mittens and stuff to give away as gifts this holiday season.

Well, I needed a much needed break from that stuff when I stumbled across an adorable knit giraffe that I know my grandson would love. Even though I’ve never knitted a toy before I thought I’d give it a whirl.
So here I am gushing over a toy to be…and the toddler praise to come :-)…while chronicling my progress.
So far I have begun knitting the body of the giraffe from the bottom up. It may not look like much so far but stay tuned…
