My friend had a baby and thus there is a baby shower coming tomorrow and I've been on a baby item knitting bend for over a week. One item I just finished is Elijah by Ysolda Teague. A wonderful and cute pattern
As Ellie demonstrates, one thing that helps is having someone help you read the directions.
He is a cutie of a project - and I think that the trunk and arms will be good for little hands.
I decorated the bum with a little daisy stitch flower
The one thing is that I found it was relatively easy to lobotomize the toy while knitting each of the arms... :P
I'm sure I'll knit this again - perhaps with a nicer yarn - I didn't have many choices in the house because I wanted it to be machine washable...
I'll post pictures of other projects I've made soon.
