Here I am. It's another FO Friday
and I'm showing off yet another one of Stacey
's amazing cuties. This time, it's a flamingo!
I got this guy as part of the kit club that arrived in September (I think...it's been awhile). I think my niece L is just going to love him! I've only made her one little toy so far
, but now that she is getting older, it's time she get some bigger, better toys from auntie!
I had to make a few minor mods to the pattern, only because I was a bad crocheter and didn't check my gauge (which is sort of important, especially with the kit clubs, because you get enough yarn to make the project plus a teeny bit extra when your gauge is correct). I already went down two hook sizes because I'm apparently the loosest crocheter ever...next time I will go down three and check my gauge.
Even with eliminating a couple of rounds, he still turned out so adorable! I look forward to make yet more of Stacey's patterns. I think this flamingo was the 7th one of her patterns I've done this year. I think it's safe to say they are my favorite things to crochet.
