Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved animals. Where ever he was, he searched and hunted for animals, both real and toys, to hold and hug. One day, he discovered his mom could make animals by waving her magic wand over balls of yarn. The magic was slow at times, but eventually, an animal would emerge for him to hold.
This is the latest addition to Little Clover’s yarn zoo, a zebra made from wool sock yarn. The zebra was finished late Sunday night, just barely coming in under the deadline for a knit along. I placed it in bed with Little Clover who found it in the morning. His eyes light up and he played with it all morning as we got ready for school. Then last night, when he went to bed, he tucked it under the covers with its head on his pillow. He named her Stripes.
