hello little elephant



Just a brief post to introduce this little fellow. He has gone to a good home with a beautiful newborn boy, and I had to take a quick photo this morning. He is from this book, and is nice and quick to knit, although a bit fiddly to make up - for some reason you knit the feet separately, like little cupcakes, and then attach them to the suit!

We're off on holidays on Friday, hooray! Hoping for some nice weather.

i think i might have squealed when i saw him. i love him. gabrielle, you have been cranking out some great knits. i wanted to ask you what pattern you used for the sewn baby kimono a few posts back. and, yes, we did have a resolution to the camera issue and we will be shooting merrily away. have a great holiday. smiles.
