Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

So not a TIGER!

I told her that someone thought she was a tiger when she was just a few rows old. Talk about Huff. First that, then I told her name on the pattern was a boys name. She is not a boy , she is a she, called Geraldine. So that told me. Then Huff of huff I mistook her tail for an ear and sewed it on wondering why it looked different to the first one. DER! Had to take it off again.

And then she took to moping, so I introduced her to her friends.

Bit happier , especially when I explained that the snake is a boy named Sue. She thought that very funny indeed.

Pattern and yarn by Deramores. Now who’s next I wonder?

And is it just me that has lippy toys fall off her needles? Do yours behave themselves nicely.

  1. Awww how super cute!! Knitting toys can be a little tiresome sometimes, because the separate parts can be so fiddly, but in the end, it’s always worth the trouble! She is GREAT. So much personality!!

    • I am so glad you like her. The next one is still waiting to be started. I have been sidelined by my stash!

      • I know what that feels like. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Last year, I checked out a few amigurumi books from the library – originally, I had wanted to crochet a fox, but then my husband saw the turtle amigurumi, and thus, I spent a few days crocheting that one instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It lives on the couch now, and he loves it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Of course Geraldine is a giraffe, the likeness is amazing. Love your animals ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Another addition your zoo! Will they stay with you or head to the grands?

    • Not quite sure where they will end up. Last week two of the grands were staying here and they were played with, so maybe with me is where they will reside.

  4. Geraldine has a lovely name, the same as a red-headed and similarly lippy friend of mine when I was a small girl. Who comes next? If we’re keeping to the African fauna theme, should it be a zebra? A wildebeest? A cheetah?

  5. If not a tiger what is she? I’d hazard a guess but I don’t want to upset her………….. Whatever she is, she’s very cute!

  6. What a colourfull collection of soft cuddlies you have – I’m thinking your zoo in making needs a big lion. One with a huge ruff mane and a long tail with fluffy bits on the end๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. I think you might be missing a monkey.

  8. a big warm welcome to Gรฉraldine!

  9. Geraldine is the sweetest..glad she has company :). What is her worried elephant friend’s name?

  10. You have quite a menagerie building up.

  11. What a cute little giraffe, and her name is perfect. Hugs, Tamara
