Out In the Wild

There’s wildlife aplenty round here: reptiles of both the legged and legless varieties, birds of all shapes and sizes, the occasional ‘roo or wallaby, echidnas, and, of course, my arch nemesis, the fox …

On the list of things that we wouldn’t normally expect to see out here in the wilds of Muckleford, would definitely be your basic giraffe, and yet, that’s just what I saw in the garden this arvo, deep in conversation with Bear,

and later, enjoying a drink at one of the local waterholes

She is very quiet and well behaved, so we’re letting her stay.

If you would like a giraffe of your very own, you can find the free pattern as a ravelry download here

The pattern is written for 4ply [fingering] and a 3.5mm hook. I used vintage 5ply [ sport] and a 3mm hook.

    She’s a cutie. Amigurumi are satisfying projects. They don’t take much time and they’re adorable.

    Bear is being very well behaved. I know Lucky would have taken off with it never to be seen again! LOL

  8. Our dog would have taken the giraffe and run with it already! Your giraffe is very cute.
