The PlanetJune Ravelry group’s Spring Crochet-A-Long included both daffodils and the tiny whale pattern; I choose the tiny whale.  He was quick to stitch and is quite adorable.

The little guy was recently adopted by friend’s daughter – she seemed to  think he was pretty cute, so I hope she’ll enjoy hanging out with him.   Now that my little guy has a new home,  I may have to make a few more tiny whales just to have around the house.

June has an amazing gift for shaping, giving a simple pattern such charm and personality.  I am impressed with her more complicated designs, but her talent is obvious even in the simple patterns such as this.
