Christmas Elephant

Finished in time for Christmas morning!

For the ears and bottoms of the feet, I used some vintage fabric I got years ago from a friend whose mom passed away.  I think she'd like where it ended up.

The pattern is "Eddie the Elephant" from Knitted Toy Tales by Laura Long.  It is so fun and cute that there will definitely be more little things made from her book in the future.

It's beginning to look a lot like...

                                                              ....an elephant.

Now for the blocking and the sewing and the stuffing, and then Eddie will be done.

Eddie the Elephant

I started knitting a stuffed elephant for my daughter.  Here is most of the body done.

(Despite repeated attempts to get a picture of Lucy in her hat, she will not keep the thing on her head.  Hat fail.  Also, after discovering an error in the knitting pattern, I think, for the size I was knitting, and not knowing how to fix said error, I ripped out the sweater I had started and moved on to other things.)
