Pics As Promised

Here he is, Jesse's Elephant...I think he is so cute!
Of course, I'm biased.





And this is the hat that I made for his little brother Jacob.
He LOVES hats!

What do you think????
I can't wait to get your feedback.

Hugs, Health & Happiness,

That elephant is absolutely adorable! And I love the hat too. I'm just learning to knit - can't wait to be able to make fun things like those. :)

Mary Anne said...

Your elephant is so cute and the hat is gorgeous - I love the colours you used.

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Carole--->Thank you so much! I worked and re-worked those ears a few times before I got them just right!

Mary Anne--->Thank you! Red is Jacob's favorite color and I just wasn't feeling a solid colored hat for for a 4 year old so I built on that.

I'm so glad y'all like them!
Hugs, health and happiness,

omg omg omg omg. I LOVE the effellant! lol. Do you sell things through this blog, Etsy, etc.? Or are these all ordered pieces?

I'm in love with Effie. lol

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Sara---> So far I haven't offered any of my stuff up for sale. I would consider it if I thought someone would be interested. Do you need a cute little Effie???

Maybe I should start an Etsy store.
That's something to think about.

Lol, my husband thought he was cute too. I didn't think he was going to let me give it to the intended recipient there for a bit, lol.

That elephant is adorable whether you're biased or not. ;)

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Thanks Renae! It's the first time I have ever knit a toy, and I ended up designing. It took a few tries to get the shaping the way I wanted it, but I definitely felt accomplished afterward!

Hugs, health and happiness,

Your elephant is awesome!!! I can't believe you have only been knitting for barely two years! I think you should consider Etsy. The world shouldn't be deprived of your awesome talent! The hat is absolutely gorgeous also!
