Some of you who may know me from Ravelry (particularly from the Completely Pointless and Arbitrary Group group) may have noticed that I have a certain fondness for a certain image macro.

Cracks me up every time.
(Er, that’s a scrap of alpaca fiber—strangely enough I couldn’t find any miniature ducks.)
Pattern: Little Giraffe by Christine Landry
Yarn: unidentified superwash fingering wt wool, yellow and brown
Needles: US0/2mm Addi Turbos
Notes: There are some better (more intricate and detailed) giraffe patterns out there, but this one was free and fast, and also has the benefit of being easily adjustable to any gauge, so my tiny giraffe is perfectly keychained sized. I shortened the legs and also kind of winged the head and the ears, as the original instructions were kind of strange. Please ignore my awfully wonky stranded knitting skills—it’s hard to strand on only 16 stitches in the round!
