Georgina is here! No, not my new baby niece.
I have been working on a new project for my sister's baby girl. I found a series of videos on YouTube on how to read patterns because truth be told I don't know how to read them. So I found a great easy to follow amigurumi giraffe tutorial. Now the original Georgina (that's what they call her in the tutorial) is yellow with orange spots but I am one to think that colors are just colors and I wanted a pink giraffe.
It took me several days to complete her, as I worked on her on parts. Lots of body parts, Frankenstein? maybe. At the beginning she looked to me more like an octopus. Little by little she started to get a shape. She has a thicker neck than she should and I won't deny that she might have lost a stitch here and there or have an extra one here or there. Now little Miss Georgina has trouble sitting and I believe her tail is higher than it should be. But since this is my very first try at reading patterns, first try at amigurumi and a gift for the new family addition
Georgina is very special.
Since she is very delicate I will advise for her to sit on a high place and enjoy the view. I do have to tell you that I love the snapshot of the little tail.
