Wednesday!!! YES! It's mid week and winding down into another glorious weekend. I have SO MUCH to do and not enough hours in the day. Do you feel like that?
Today I have a quick share that my Facebook followers have already seen earlier in the week. I've had this Raff digi from Autumn Moon Designs printed ready to colour for a few weeks now, and when I flicked through a crochet magazine at the newsagent the other day and saw this cute Giraffe beanie I just KNEW what I had to do!!!
The pattern did call for 8 ply, but I think next time I would adjust the pattern to use 4 ply and a smaller hook and just do more rows. But I think he is super cute anyway and very snuggly!!! And well. What can I say about the digi, I just love it. I had intended to originally use the image on a layout featuring the giraffes at Taronga Zoo, and I might still do that, but I love it on a small gift card as well!!!
