Who Wants to Knit a Giraffe?

Hi Knitters,
I've been wanting to do this forever and now that I am home for a good stretch, I am. I have enough brand new, untouched yarn sitting in my studio for someone to make another Giraffe from Itty-Bitty Toys. It's the same yarn I used to knit the original Giraffe. The Giraffe calls for two skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash in Daffodil. Got it. Plus you need one skein of Orange in the same. Check. It's all here and ready to go.

I have no plans to knit another Giraffe anytime soon so I want you to take it off my hands!
You all know the drill. Leave me a comment. Say hello or whatever you'd like (within reason, of course:). I will randomly select a winner in a day or two or a few days, I don't know exactly when. I'll see how it goes. Please leave some identifying something like your name, location, anything you feel comfortable with. Only enter once, please. After I select a winner I will post the winning comment. The winner will have a few days to send me their mailing address through my email (on the sidebar). If I don't hear anything I will pick a new winner at that time.
Have fun! Let's make this one fast and furious.

I may even play a little Secret Santa and sweeten the pot with some added prizes!!! You never know what you might get. I've got stuff, Knitters, good stuff. And I like to give it away.

fyi: One thing that won't be included in the surprise pot is a copy of Itty-Bitty Toys since I only have one copy in my possession at this point. I have given away every copy I had, which was maybe 15-20 copies, can't remember exactly. I need to get some more books for sure but right now I need to hang onto the only copy I have.

Okay, Knitters, go for it!
best, susie

I have not made any toys, but I sure would like a try at the giraffe. I have a granddaughter who would love to play with it.

I would love to win! I am currently working on the pig. My goal next year is to make at least one of each litlle animal and doll in your book. Thanks for the book and the inspiraion. Love, love, love you and your adventures. One of my favorite quotes is "do something you love and find a way to get paid for it". You go girl!

Rhonda said...

I love that little giraffe! When my daughter was a baby I bought her a teeny tiny stuffed giraffe - we named it Baby Gaffe. :)
Thanks so much!

The Chase Family said...

I love this giraffe! His cover shot on the the book is what inspired me to purchase it - and to think - I didn't even know how to knit at the time! :)

This guy is on my list of to-dos for my 9 mo old son!

Would love to knit this for my 5'10" mother-in-law! She feels a special bond with all things giraffe, and teaching her beautiful great-grandchildren (almost 1 and 3) about animals is a favorite activity. My grand-niece and nephew love their cupcake and birthday cake hats! Thanks so much -- Iris

Becca said...

Oooh, I am planning on making the giraffe soon, and winning the yarn would be so exciting! Thank you, Susan, for all of your kindness! :)

Margie said...

This giraffe is adorable! I love giraffes and this one would be perfect for my first foray into toy knitting. I have your Itty-Bitty Hats book (LOVE it to pieces!!!) and Itty-Bitty Toys is on my holiday wish list. Hopefully, Santa will think I've been good! Thanks for your generosity, Susan!!

GreenT said...

I'd love to give it a try. Nice book too!

I enjoy your work so much.

I definitely don't need more yarn for my stash, but I would love to have a Giraffe! So please enter me in the drawing. Hopefully, he will knit up with flat feet, unlike the pointed toes on my Elefante (thanks for the help through Ravelry!).

Cate said...

Carol said...

Holiday greetings from Cincinnati, OH. I'm planning to make the giraffe for my Goddaughter's birthday in March. (She saw the hippopotamus I made for her little sister's b-day and declared she didn't want any more store-bought toys, only toys made by me! How cute/sweet is that? And I thought you would appreciate the sentiment since you're the wonderful designer.) Anyway, I'd love to win the yarn for this. Thanks for your wonderful work!

Erin said...

Your stuff is sooooo cute! My local knitting store still does not have Itty Bitty Toys :(

Florida Family of Four said...

Giraffe is my favorite pattern from your new book! I've already tried to track down the yarn at my LYS and they didn't have the right colors. Would love a chance to win.. :)

Bridget Bosch said...

YAY! I love a good giveaway! I'm working on 3 wrap-me-up puppies for Christmas for my girls & my God-daughter... I've got 16 days to get them finished, along with 5 baby hats--what are the odds that I'll be knitting into the wee hours of Christmas morning?? January looks good for my little Giraffe friend!!

My daughter falls asleep every night with a teddy bear I knit her two years ago. And she is in LOVE with giraffes. I think it'd be a perfect BIG SISTER gift for her next month (gasp!) when her baby sister arrives.

Here's to hoping.....

I do! I do! I want to knit a giraffe! And it's my daughter's latest word. She'd really love this dolly.

The giraffe is very cute! I don't have a copy of the book yet but I did knit something from it for the KP catalog so I definitely want to get a copy!

Hey! Love your giveaways! So fun! Thanks Susan you inspire me always!

my nursery is giraffe-themed (that is originally what lured me into buying your book). i would love to add that sweet giraffe to it.

I'd love to knit a giraffe for my nephew, due to be born in February. His brother already has a lion, so a giraffe would be great!

I want to knit a Giraffe (and knit it in Milwaukee)!

Nichole said...

I would love to knit this giraffe. I've been keeping up with your book tour and even though I live in Baltimore I was so happy to see pictures of Loops in Tulsa as it is one of my favorite yarn shops to shop online and it was great to see what it looked like in person! Itty Bitty Toys is fabulous!

What fun! I recently just finished the reversible lion and elephant (I'm SarahSparkle on Ravelry), which is to go to my nephew for Christmas. He loves to make animal sounds, and I think he'll have a lot of fun with it. The reversibility of the toy made me feel really clever. A giraffe would be perfect for his collection!

Ertman-Trowbridge Family said...

I would, of course, love this opportunity to knit this fun guy with the yarn that the pattern actually calls for. I almost always have to substitute yarn because the "real" stuff is too experience for our family. And I will need a winter project-- baby no. 2 comes in February and I could use the distraction!

D. said...

Oooh, what a great giveaway! It would be a great excuse to go out and by the book too!

Linda Gilbert said...

Well I am a complete newbie to this but would so love this dear giraffe to help me on my way. Please pretty please let me be lucky

I would love to knit this, but would have a hard time deciding who to give it to--I have 2 nephews and a little sister--it would be a toss up!

Susan!

I love all your toys and books and reading your blog. I'm so sad that I won't be able to meet you at Sticher's Crossing this weekend, but I'm leaving my books with Gael for you to sign.
I'm leaving Friday for my new goddaughter's baptism and this would be a great christmas gift for her that I don't have time to knit!

Thanks!

Mommy said...

I asked for your book for Christmas particularly because of the giraffe pattern. I looked forever for a good knit pattern, and was so glad to see you had put one together! My three little girls (twin 17 month year olds and one due in April) will soon be adding this to their small, but growing collection of knit animals.

Natasha said...

My 2.5 year old daughter is fascinated by the giraffes at Vilas Zoo and would love this - it looks really fun to make too!

Anonymous said...

Hi Susan,
How fun to give away the yarn for this - thank you for thinking of your readers! I would love to be chosen...I am in the process of making the giraffe into a "horse" with a brown body and a black mane, with no spots of course, for a little girl in my life. I would love to make the giraffe just like the one on the cover. I have made several projects out of the toys book so far, two frogs, and the cutest little turkey. I've decided I like knitting toys even better than hats! Thanks for all you do. You are a blessing!

ooooo, me! pick me! The only Christmas present I asked for this year was Itty Bitty Toys...and I bought it for myself a few days ago because I couldn't wait.

You are so sweet! Ivebeen knitting up a storm from itty toys and itty nursery, then on to 3 different hats of yours then back to sweater and a couple of pairs of booties from itty bitty nursery. Buy it's the Giraffe that I WANT to knit, my guilty pleasure, my not-for-Christmas toy. Plus I'd love to try that yarn. The closest shop that sells it is 2 hrs. away in Austin. Oh, well hopefully somewhere here in College Station will have Chloe and Spud soon! Thanks again, Andrea.

Gosh that's cute! I am a relatively new knitter, but I would love to make children's toys. My friend is having her second child - what a great gift for the big sister to make her feel special with a new baby on the way.

The book is on my Christmas list...so I hope I get it and I think the first thing I would knit would be the giraffe or the hippo! It's such a wonderful book.
This is a wonderful give away!

How tacky is it for me to say "pick me! pick me!"? I'd love to knit this giraffe..he'd look so cute next to the picture I have of the mother giraffe bending over to plant a kiss on the head of her baby. Or...I could give it to my granddaughter. Or...I could include it in a raffle for a library fund raiser.

See....I have so many ways to use this giraffe!

What a great giveaway. I truly enjoyed meeting you in Minneapolis at Needlework Unlimited! If my comment is picked, I would be making this for my 2 year old son. BTW, I just finished your little Elf.

I just recently bought your new book, and love all those patterns. I would love the yarn to knit one up for a soon to be born little girl in January which would be a lovely addition to her room since she will have 2 older brothers to share it with. The giraffe looks like it is enjoying the snooze on the couch. Do you post to Oz!

The giraffe is one of my favorites from the book : ) I would be super excited to win!

What a great Holiday giveaway. I adore all of your patterns. I have done the wrap me up puppies, the squishy balls, and am working on the baby bear. I also just completed the Spud & Chloe Elf knit along pattern. I just sent it via the post to a friend to cheer her up. If picked to win the Cascade yarn for the giraffe, I would be making the toy for my son, who just celebrated his second birthday.

P.S. I really enjoyed meeting you at Needlework Unlimited in Minneapolis. :-)

I'd love to knit a giraffe, too, for my soon-to-be 5 mo daughter.

I made this super-long scarf out of Cascade Lavender and Montmartre and ABSOLUTELY hated it once finished. Frogged it and it's now on its way to becoming a super-cute purple giraffe. So much better than the scarf.

Hi Susan,

I'd love to knit the giraffe! I just finished my first two toys--Ribbit and Rabbit--and love how they turned out! I think I'm ready to move on to a bigger project...keeping my fingers crossed!

I just got Itty Bitty Toys! I am enjoying it already and that's just looking at it. I want to knit the giraffe for my granddaughter.

Maureen said...

I have knit my way through Itty Bitty Hats for my 14 month old granddaughter (all adorable!) and would love to have this giraffe peeking out of the top of her stocking on Christmas morning! I already purchased Itty Bitty Toys so I'm ready to go!
Thank you for your generosity! Christmas blessings to you and your beautiful family!

What fun! Count me in.

Oh, Susan you are too kind! This pattern is the reason I bought the book! My sister (my absolute best friend in the entire world) loves giraffes and it was her nickname growing up. This would be the perfect thing for her birthday!
Thanks so much for the opportunity, it means so much to us all :)

Susan, your itty-bitty giraffe looks so sweet sleeping on a rose pillow. I would love to kniw him and put him to sleep on a pillow at my house! Really enjoyed meeting you at the Wool Cabin in SLC last month. Class project was a blast to knit. Thanks

Oh I hope you pick me! I love Giraffes. I even have enough Giraffe items to decorate a nursery some day! Including a 6 foot giraffe my mother gave me when I moved out on my own. I had been wishing for that particular Giraffe every birthday when I would blow out the candles on my cake since I was 3 years old.

I heard you on the Craft Sanity Podcast today. I am having a great time making toys and amigurumi and preemie hats and socks. I knew your name but I'm glad to find your podcast and your blog. Thanks

Sara Spalding said...

i'm a fairly new knitter, and i also just started working at a zoo in providence, RI where we have four gorgeous giraffes. i like projects because you usually remember where you where in life when you made them. i would love to knit the giraffe to remember when i first fell in love with yarn and when i first got to be so close to these amazing animals in real life.

Kati said...

I would love to make the giraffe. I am currently working on the hippo and the patterns in the book are great!

Thanks,

I love the giraffe, one of my 5 1/2 year old triplets LOVES giraffes and has drawn some of the most adorable ones in her sweet child hand! I would LOVE to knit this for her (I might have to do two more for the other two though!!) :) Thanks for the opportunity! Blessings!

I just hinted (read told) to my husband that I would love a copy of Itty Bitty Toys for Christmas! Maybe I can win some yarn to go with it!!! Thanks for chance to win!

Nicole said...

I do, I do! Well, as soon as I finish knitting your three little pigs set.I have only been knitting for a year and it is a bit ambitious, but I am motivated to figure it out in time to give it to my (3) kiddos (5, 3, 4 mnths) for Christmas. The giraffe could be my next project, and perfect for my new (and only) little boy!
