FO No. 17


Have any of you seen those kits at Spotlight, the Wild Friends one they have. Well I bought a giraffe one to make for Isabelle and am just getting around to knitting it up now, but last week I found some of the same kits for half price at Kmart of all places, so snatched one up to make. This is Zoe the Zebra and she was so easy to make. The cotton they use for each animal is very soft, a bit like that Cotone cotton I used for some knits about 2 years ago now. I started Zoe on Friday night, and did some odd bits of knitting over the weekend and finished her up on Monday night. I think she looks rather cute posing in front of the mirror, and she does sit down if it isnt a slippery surface which the bookcase seemed to be. I dont know who I will gift her to as yet as we have a few friends who are all due in July or thereabouts so I am sure I can gift her to one of them as part of the present. Now back to knitting George the Giraffe!!
