Buckinghamigurumi: Buckingham Palace Guard Crochet Pattern

I am way to pleased with myself for naming the pattern Buckinghamigurumi (try saying that 10 times fast). Aaaaaaaand, I’m over it. Let’s get on with the post.

My friend Racheli is celebrating 10 years of blogging (10 years! wow!), and in honor of this occasion, she asked 10 bloggers to write a post inspired by her (or her blog).

10 years of blogging, 10 days of inspiration

I met Racheli online, I’m sure it was through facebook somehow, but my memory is terrible, I’m not exactly sure of the details. She was nice enough to invite me to a celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Although we live in Israel, Racheli loves everything and anything British, and the party was incredible. If you follow this link, you’ll see the amazing decorations and excellent food (the text is in Hebrew, but the pictures speak for themselves).

When she asked me to contribute to her “10 years of blogging, 10 days of inspiration” project, I started in another direction (I was thinking a Hagrid costume, because of the geeky aspect of her blog), but when this idea hit me – I just knew it was the right thing!

By the way, all the pictures of London in this post were taken in 2004, before I even had a digital camera. The quality is so-so, but I figured since I have the pictures it would be a crime not to use them. Right?

So, let’s get started.
