fawn


There was a little visitor in our garden today, he was a bit shy.


I was lucky to have a chance to get up close to the wee fellow. Watching quietly as he stopped to sniff the daisies.


Something scared him off though, and he frolicked off into the wilds of the meadow. Hope he visits again soon.


If you want to crochet one too, you can find the pattern in the "Simply Crochet" magazine issue 6, or the designer has a book too. It's called Simply adorable crochet, by Maki Oomachi. This little one is crocheted out of some my handspun Alpaca, it's so super soft and even though I made it as a gift, I want to keep it!

I've also got a wee sale in my Felt shop. Use the code SALE25 to receive a 25% discount on anything in my shop! The code can be used until this Sunday evening.

  3. Oh my, how adorable he is! He must be incredibly soft made from alpaca... I know a little girl who would love one of these. Is the pattern suitable for a beginner? How much wool do you need?

  7. Absolutely adorable! We visited an alpaca farm in New Mexico this summer. What fun! I bought some of their alpaca yarn for a friend who knits -- wasn't sure I could do it justice with crochet. Best wishes, Tammy
