Ellie the Knitted Elephant and a Small Giveaway

Meet Ellie, she is my new elephant design, I have designed an elephant previously, but I wasn’t too excited about the overall shape, so I thought about it for quite a while and then came up with new design. I have knitted her in an aran weight wool with 4mm needles. She is knitted flat with increasing and decreasing, a fairly easy pattern. The tusks are knitted as i-cords and the eyes are needle felted on.
Her height is 5 inches and 7 inches from trunk to tail.
I have also knitted this pattern in a thicker chunky wool and she knits up twice the size!

Ellie’s pattern is avaliable on my Mamma4earth Etsy Shop for sale.

WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along

This week has been a week for finishing projects.
I finally finished off my Shalom Cardigan!!! I am so thrilled with it, I made it slightly bigger than the pattern, I added an extra row on the yoke and then I thought it was going to be huge, so I left it sitting in a basket for months… finally I picked it up again, finished the sleeves and blocked it. When I tried it on, it had such a comfy fit and I am ecstatic about it!! Really!

I also finished Kye’s Boy Hat, I really love this quick and easy pattern and Kye is so excited about his mama knitted hat.

And you won’t believe it… but I finished The Harris Shrug, a lovely chevron pattern.

My two girls have been knitting scarves and hats over the past two weeks, oh my!
This neck warmer is so cute, Jen knitted it as a fun project, it’s called Incognito and has a moustache embroidered on to the knitting.

Have I told you how happy I am that they love to knit?
Yesterday, Erin, “Mom?”,
me, “Yes?”
Erin, “I love to knit mom!”
me, happy dance!!!

Erin and Jen both knitted this Capucine hat, I think I am going to knit myself one too!

Erin finished this Ear Flap Hat yesterday in chunky cotton and a thinner Merino double knitting.

I am about to dye wool for my Tea Leaves Cardigan, anyone fancy a Tea Leaves KAL? Let me know:)

I am still reading Farm Anatomy and enjoying it.
