My good friends, Heather and Kevin, told me they were going to come down to Florida for their vacation this year. I was stoked! They have a 3 year old daughter (whom I have never met), so of course I had to ask what her favorite animal is to make a welcome gift for her. Nothing wrong with buying a kid's affection, right? Right. Apparently, she loves giraffes, so I finally got to use the pattern I had :)Crocheted Softies by Stacey Trock. I used some butter yellow colored Red Heart Super Saver yarn I've had since I don't know when (that means I might have bought this in high school - holy cow) as well as Everyday Worsted yarn in Chocolate Brown.
Alpaca pattern from the same book. I think the mouth makes them a little friendlier :)
