Wo-OOOW, I love this pattern!! Elijah's redonkulously cute, and he'll soon be flying f/CA to NC to meet his new buddy, the newly adopted 1 yr old son of my friends. :hug:

He's by Ysolda of ysolda.com - brilliant pattern, not only her design, but also incredibly clear and logically spelled out. Highly recommend her.

Now ... time to make my OWN Elijah ... :woot:

I just looked at Ysolda's website. She has some great things. Thanks for sharing!

Wow - you toy knitters make me want my dd to have all knitted toys!

07-08-2008, 12:40 PM
Awwww, he's so cute! :heart:

07-08-2008, 02:51 PM
This has been on my list, but I have been intimidated. I love yours, it is so cute.

07-08-2008, 04:32 PM
Thank you everyone, for the props!! It will actually be painful to part with him, he's so adorable. I'm starting on my own today ;)

domiknitrix - please don't be intimidated - I'm really only an intermediate knitter (don't knit socks, or lace). See my notes on Ravelry (I'm lovechild) - hopefully they'll help, especially the you-tube video for the lighter circular cast-on. I just saw your hemlock blanket (holy moly!), and you'd have no problem cranking out as many Elijahs as you desire! ;)

Awwww! So cute!

07-08-2008, 11:10 PM
I love him! :)

He's adorable! Now I want to make one for Kate, I'll just add it to the list, if I can squeeze it on.

A blue elephant is just SO cute!

I don't think anyone has asked this yet - what yarn did you use? He looks so soft, sweet, and huggable!

07-09-2008, 02:22 PM
Thanks, McKnitty ;) I searched for just the right yarn b/c it has to be very soft and non-scratchy - yet stand up to washing and the inevitable (I hope!) wear from being dragged around by a toddler.

It's Crystal Palace Bunny Hop - suuuper soft, 10% angora and 90% acrylic/microfiber blend, tightly plied so I think it'll wear well, and can be (gently) machine washed. Highly recommend it, and feels good to knit with to boot. I bet it looks great in baby wear!

I got some pink this weekend - am going to start on a modification of this pattern for a bunny ;)

07-09-2008, 02:46 PM
Yes he is!!! :cheering:

07-09-2008, 03:21 PM
ADORABLE!!! I want, no need, one of those little guys! problem is I have 3 little ones that would want one too :)

07-09-2008, 09:27 PM
Hi There!

Wow... he has to be the cutest toy i've ever seen!:o::teehee:

He looks super cuddly and if I was a baby, i'd want him very much!

07-14-2008, 09:33 AM
OMGoodness!! He is too cute! What a precious keepsake!

07-14-2008, 01:24 PM
I love Elijah! He's so cute! Love the colors you used, too. GREAT JOB!!!

07-14-2008, 10:44 PM
Oh, he's so sweet. What was he stuffed with and did it take long to make him?:heart:

07-15-2008, 05:13 AM
oh he's georgous.

i want one too now hehe.

ds whos 5 saw it too and has informed me that i must knit that for him :roflhard: .

must admit though yours looks better than the pictured one for the pattern, the one in the pattern looks kind of sad, your dosent at all

truley georgous though :yay:

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Elijah's fiddly to make, but not difficult technically, especially with the well-written pattern.

Puddinpop (cute username ;), he's stuffed w/regular polyfill that you can get at your craft store or Walmart. I'm making my own, and will fill him w/plastic pellets (like Beanie Babies) & polyfill, but I figured it'd be safer not to do that for a baby.
I figure it took me maybe ~ 7 evenings to complete him (?) - spread out over time, of course....

07-17-2008, 06:04 PM
He is cute and friendly looking, I love his tie.

07-17-2008, 10:25 PM
OMG that's cute! I think I'm gonna have to make my own Elijah.
For my DD. Yeah, that's right, for my DD.....:whistle:

07-18-2008, 01:26 PM
What a cute little elephant. You did a good job on him too. I love elephants. Great gift!

07-18-2008, 02:29 PM
