Last Easter I visited my sister for a few days, so, in good time, I asked her what could I sew or crochet to my nephews. She was very clear about it: a stork! In fact two, one for each of them. At that time, there was a family of storks in all villages around and, after school, they loved to looked at them.
Me puse a buscar patrones por Internet y encontré a Eugenio, una monada diseñada por Pica Pau que aparece publicado en el libro Zoomigurumi Vol. 3, de Amigurumipatterns.
So I looked for some stork patterns in Internet and I found Eugenio, a cuteness designed by Pica Pau that is published in the book Zoomigurumi Vol. 3, by Amigurumipatterns.
I used Katia Alabama yarns (off-white, orange and pistachio). As you can imagine, the orange one was for Simon and the pistachio-green for Bruno.
The pattern was very easy to follow. It was my first time with a Pica Pau pattern and I loved it. I think it's a very good idea to crochet the head and body as one piece and not as two separate parts as usual.
Por cierto, mis sobrinos ya me han hecho sus peticiones para los próximos muñecos... entre los muchos animales que me han pedido, los primeros elegidos son la serpiente y el águila.
By the way, my nephews have already told me which animals they want me to do to them... among the long list they've made, they first want a snake and an eagle.
Cuando le estaba haciendo fotos a las cigüeñas, apareció Simón y me "ayudó" con la sesión... vamos, que se fue acercando poco a poco y se animó "haciendo volar" a las cigüeñas :))))))
When I was taking some photos to them, Simon appeared and he "helped" me with the photo shoot... in other words, he came slowly closer and then he "helped the storks to fly" :)))))
Y en esta última foto en casa de mi hermana aparece el calendario de adviento de Authen-tic que le regalé hace unos cuantos años y que tiene colgado todo el año porque le encanta.
And in this last photo at my sister's house you can see the advent calendar designed by Authen-tic I gave to her some years ago and that it's hanging all the year round because she loves it.
Have a nice week!!
