I think that I mentioned that I have rediscovered my love of knitting and that I have found a wonderful group of ladies who are also avid knitters. We meet twice a week during our lunch and have quite the awesome knitting circle going. I have gotten over my fear of circular needles and also double pointed needles and in fact knitted this awesome (if I may say so myself) giraffe for my nephew Kieran for Christmas using double pointed needles. Meet Gerald the Giraffe.
He was quite the labour of love as I was also not only trying to get him done in time for Christmas but I also had to meet that pesky international shipping deadline. But thanks to my awesome knitting buddy Marny who helped me with the spots and the pom poms as I was running out of time I made it and he is now on his way to France although I almost kept him for myself...kidding!
I can't wait for Kieran to open him for Christmas...well that is if it actually gets there in the time that they said that it will. Fingers and toes crossed.
