I knitted and knitted and ... finished and posted the giraffe. It is based on pattern in Itty Bitty toys book which was GREAT present from Sally for Christmas ... of course i had to change it little. It is stripy (yes i like stripes) and the pompoms were too easy to pull a part as i made it from cotton so another little change. It came out ok and it already emigrated to Czech Republic. I hope the birthday girl will on her first birthday enjoy this stripy creature.
