Hobby Part 2

After my success with the little koala bear hat I decided to go for another crochet project-amigurumi. I bought a pattern off etsy of the cutest giraffe. I then spent about 5 hours reading, youtubing, blogging, and e-mailing the sender to figure out how to read the pattern, understand how to make a "magic loop," how to work in rounds, and that the stitches here are ever so slightly different that what I was taught....but I had success and made the giraffe. Then-I modified the pattern and made a unicorn for a close friend's baby shower! 
These take SO long to make. The giraffe with all the youtubing, re-doing, and re-reading of the pattern took probably a total of 20 hours to make. The unicorn was a little faster. Now I want to make these! I love baby shoes. I just need to use all the yarn I already have...


  1. WOW. I am SO impressed!! That giraffe is so stinkin' cute! I totally believe it took that long too... I think I need to learn how to crochet!

  2. Girl! This is seriously cool stuff! It fits with your maticulous and creative nature. I'm so glad you learned how to do this, so I don't have to. ;-)
