More Giraffe

Well I started off the year with first a stomach bug, then a cold, then nasty allergies from a major home renovation leading to major dust kickup. So crafting’s been a bit on the backburner, but finally I’ve finished something!

It’s another giraffe for the coming cousin. Last scarf will be finished soon. Pattern is the same giraffe from ElenasTimes, and the materials are the same as well. Nice to have something finished finally! And with any luck it can now be shipped and arrive in Seattle before the baby’s born.

The Least-Spooky Fruit

In hindsight, I should probably have started on a pumpkin or something to post on Halloween, but at the same time these last few weeks have been hectic. So, a pear. Once again the pattern is courtesy of Veronica Kay Crochet, and the yarns are all cotton – Patons Grace Ginger for the main body, Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream Warm Brown for the stem, and the same in Sage for the leaf.

I’ve been working with dk weight yarn so much recently the larger ones feel awkward to work with. I also had to modify the pattern a bit to keep the stem and leaf proportional, though not dramatically. Now onward to more crochet food.

Imposter food

My uncle’s having a baby in February, and blankets were already covered so I wanted to make something else. Such as toy food, suitable for all toy food needs. Fortunately, Veronica Kay Crochet provides, to what is probably slightly overkill levels. On the other hand, I can now make pretty much any food item I want.

All the yarn here is cotton – Red and white are Patons Grace, green is Lily Sugar ‘n Cream in Sage Green. Might try for a different green if I can find it later, but it’s a good strawberry leaf green.
