rehabilitate my smile

I am waiting on yarn to knit my first sweater. Because I apparently have caught the bug again, I started another little project last night, just with some of my (monstrous) both-my-grandmothers-left-me-knitting-supplies-and-yarn stash. Blue, sport weight, just plain old acrylic, using my size 5 bamboo double pointeds.  I bought some batting to fill up my project, and went to town.

And I knitted a head.  Not just any head, an elephant head.

Elekk head this morning.

And then, when I got home, I got to knitting again (even though my sweater yarn arrived) and now, it is an elephant head with a body and the start (the THIRD start, which I have yet to get right) of an ear.

With new, improved body!

Hmm. Do I go to sleep, or try, try again with that ear? (Maybe I should have moved on by knitting him a limb or two, since those seem much easier…)

  1. I love the color and the elephant is so cute! I can’t wait to see the finished product with eyes and everything. You must put on some eyes and you must finish the product and you must post the photos. Aren’t I being bossy? Will you keep it for yourself or give it to a little one who calls you “aunt?”
