Diversion

I got Maggie's birthday sweater finished, gussied, wrapped, packed, and shipped off to WA. Since I can't show it to you until after she sees it...

Have a couple more Elliot pictures.



(I'm sure my mom's neighbors don't think I'm strange for taking pictures of a stuffed elephant on her driveway... she took pictures of stuffed turtles playing volleyball in her backyard. I come by it honestly.)

Did I ever tell you about the other elephant I made for my aunt? I don't think I have. It was during the pre-blog era (PBE). The pattern is from Toy Knits by Debbie Bliss. The gray yarn is Rowan Wool Cotton, the white sweater is a baby cotton, the skates are more Wool Cotton and some shiny thread (ooh, shiny!), and I'm not sure what the red scarf and hat are made from.

They are both adorable! Don't you think that the newest needs clothes too? Poor thing must feel so left out. ;)

How can you have two such cute elephants and not have a book about them? I'm sure they feel left out.
Plus, if Elliot was around during the construction of Knit Knack's back to school outfit, then he probably wants one, too.

He looks like Babar! Too cute!

I love the picture of Elliot and his shadow. He looks big and fearsom. And I'll have to introduce the world to my little girl Elephant (her name is Olivia) who is twin to your elephant. Except I never got around to making her skates.....or a skirt. She's not very modest.

My kids and I used to watch Babar every day and read the books. It looks like a Babar to me anyway. The elephants are just too cute

Elliot is just such a perfect name for him! My neighbors think I'm crazy too, taking pictures of four knitted turtles on my driveway and sidewalk, and in the trees.
