Last week, Dave and I took a ‘research trip’ to the zoo. It was the perfect day to go – the weather was gorgeous but not too hot, and with all the kids back in school, it was practically deserted! I always love to see the animals, and African Lion Safari is very special because you can drive around inside the huge enclosures while the animals roam free. It gives you a chance to get much closer to some amazing animals than you would normally get in a zoo.
I was hoping for some inspiration for new designs, but it turns out I’ve made a lot of the animals already! Let’s take a look:
Ring-tailed lemur: check.
Llama: check. (Well, Alpaca, that’s close enough!)
What’s left? How about some of these?
These ostriches came right up to the car and looked through the window at us!
Lioness with a couple of big cubs
Awww, baby zebra!
Aww again, baby giraffe!
We had a lovely day out, and I got some great ideas, including one more which I haven’t shown above because I’m in the middle of designing the crocheted version! All will be revealed soon, and in the meantime, I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my animal photos 🙂
