Easy to knit, HARD to sew together. At least for a sewing newbie like me , but oh SO cute! <3 him, in spite of his poorly sewn little body. His neck looked wonky, so I knit him a scarf (securely sewn on afterward). This is going to my husband's cousin, who is having her first baby next month!

LOL What fun! I've never seen an elephant from this angle before. The yarn reminds me of the sock yarn you used for the recent socks you did from the toe up, only blue instead of pink. He looks like he's sleeping in the yarn pile in the second picture.

He is! Well, he would if he were a real elephant. But then again, if he were a real elephant, he wouldn't be able to sleep on a pile of yarn because he's be too big!
