With most of my crochet animal stash having flown off the table at my first Winterfest last month, I’ve been thinking about what to make to replenish the inventory. My first little guy was decided for me by a fan I acquired from the show. Sam emailed me to ask if I could make a goat for him to give to a friend for his/her birthday. Of all things…a goat! Cute…but I had never made one before. And he wanted it in one week! Good thing I love a fun challenge.
Here’s what I ended up with. I wasn’t sure what he would look like until he was done. I just made him up as I went along…and I think he’s pretty adorable! Gary Goat (as my daughter named him) is on his way to his new home even as I write. All wrapped up in tissue paper with a custom gift tag and ready to pop out of the bag to meet his new owner.
Hope your friend enjoys Gary, Sam!
I’ve been working on some darling baby blankets so stay tuned…
