I meant what I said

And I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful 100%. -Dr. Seuss

He has blue eyes to match the quilt.

Elijah- Done

Pattern: Elijah Elephant by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Silver Beige
Needles: KP Options Size 7 US
Filling: Bamboo Stuffing- Earth friendly!
Date Started: 4/1/08
Date Finished: 4/9/08

This was a very fun and quick knit. His eyes are a little uneven but I think it adds to his charm.

Yarn4Socks has a really neat offer going this year. The first 50 orders they have every month get a knitting charm free. And we all know I LOVE a gift with purchase. At the end of the year you'll have a bracelet full of knitting charms. Really cute idea! Plus, they had a yarn I've been stalking for awhile.

ShiBui- Wasabi

ShiBui Wasabi Sock Yarn. So pretty. It's literally the perfect green.

Here's April's Charm

Sheep Charm

My little sheep came on a silver bracelet. The only bad thing about this is that I'm afraid it'll be a gateway drug toward other knitting related apparel. I'm already stalking this etsy shop for a squeep tee.

Ah Horton Hears A Who! I've read that book at least a million times to my kiddos. :~)
I just placed my first order with Yarn4Socks the other day. They have some great stuff.
You are such an enabler. Now I want a t-shirt! ;~)

Loved Horton, even saw the cartoon with my kids recently - kind of new spin on it.

That elephant is fantabulous! So cute and most assuredly soft in the Debbie Bliss.

Yummy green shibuiknits!

I love those T's - the Borg reference is right on target when it comes to yarn and knitting!
