I think I'm really going to enjoy this project. It's a bigger toy, so it will take longer than the others, but I think the results will be well worth the effort. And I can't wait to see X cuddling, tugging, hauling, playing and loving on this toy. :) Since he's finally getting into the stage where he likes "stuffed animals" this is a good time for this guy.
I've also found that since I queued up Giraffe, I've been drawn to many other giraffe patterns on Ravelry. Who knows, maybe by this time next year X will have a giraffe collection? Probably not likely, but you never know. Like this Sock Giraffe - how cute is that?! And I have to admit that this pattern, Mango, was love at first sight. I wouldn't go so far as to say he'll be the next toy I cast-on, but the chances are good. :)
Other projects on the needles right now? Just a few.............
On a fun note, when looking through "the stash" I found an extra hank of white Cascade 220 Superwash! What a fun find! Some people think, wow, white, that's sort of boring. I think - hooray! More yarn to experiment with! :) I think I'll be ording some Wilton's dye soon to try alongside KoolAid. Especially in black and delphinium blue...I've heard these colors "break" in great ways. :)
Okay - enough bloggy goodness for now!
