About the Designer-

   

I have to say that Susan B. Anderson is one of my favorite toy designers, and you can see all of her patterns here at Yarn Loop.  She has created designs from Spud & Chloë ranging from her tennis ball stuffed Ribbit & Rabbit, pinky ball stuffed Oink, all of which bounce in random and crazy ways with their floppy legs/wings.  She also designed favorites such as Fat Robin, the Leaf Blanket, Watermelon Hat and the list goes on and on!  She has published several books including Spud & Chloë at the Farm and Itty Bitty Nursery, and is currently the owner behind the new yarn company, Barrett Wool Co.  I am thrilled to be able to bring you so many of her beautiful patterns and kits, and I hope that you love the Little Giraffe and have the perfect little one in mind who needs one for a present.

        

The Rules-

Winner must be a resident of the USA and must reside in the lower 48 states. (I truly wish I could open the drawing up to be worldwide, but shipping costs make this cost prohibitive.)  Winner must post 1 photo of the kit after receiving, while knitting this cutie pa-tootie, or the finished toy.  This drawing is hosted on Rafflecopter to guarantee a random, unbiased winner.  However, we do intend to announce the winner with lots of exuberance...stay tuned for our fun video!  The drawing is held by Yarn Loop and has no affiliations with Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter or any other social media site.  We are thrilled that you are interested in our giveaway, and I hope you will subscribe to our mailing list and visit us again!

Oh my goodness!!! That is the most adorable little giraffe! Must have or must make for my sister (who is absolutely nutty about everything giraffes) and is expecting a little one next winter.

So cute! Haven’t made too many toys, but would like to make this for a co-worker who’s retiring after 41 years (who collects giraffes). Hope I win! :)
