What's she building in there?*
Recently spotted in my bedroom. What could it be???
Too small for a hat.
Too round for a pair of socks.
The stumpiest, most unattached gloves you ever did see?
A ball for the dog, perhaps?
Complete with oozing green stuff.
But yes, of course, it's another Elefante!
I made this one for my friends Rebecca and Jonathan's little girl, Jada. I love this yarn. It's self-striping sock yarn, so it looks more complicated than my last Elefante, but it wasn't. This one is smaller. The ears went on a little wonky, however, so it looks a bit more like a mouse with a very long nose than an elephant. But so easy! And so much fun to knit! I'm planning to make at least two more in the near future.
