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.

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