Sock Elephant and Blue

Project::Sock Elephant


I made this little elephant for a birthday present.  The happy 6 year old promptly named her Ellie.  I used the pattern in this bookBlair was the one who turned me on to it, but I was skeptical.  My only other sock animal experience was not good.  Then I saw Blair's dog and decided to give it another go.  The elephant is not perfect (my mistakes), but the pattern was well written and the book is full of cute little critters.

Color week::Blue


The sky at dusk and


me wearing a light blue shirt.  I am also wearing these beautiful earrings from Susan - you just can't see them in the shot.

In other news, I taught myself a new craft and am aching to tell you all about it.  I'll save that for another day.  Let's just say, I'm hooked.  Happy Friday!



I just let out a squeal of delight - if this new craft is what I think it is! Can't wait for the big reveal!

And Ellie is adorable - love that stripey trunk!

The elephant is cracking me up - so funny and so endearingly wonderful at the same time. Cuddly and floppy and the perfect take-along companion for a wee one. Thanks for sharing!!!


I think I recognize some striped Gymboree tights that Elle had last year. ;)

Can't wait to hear about your new craft!

Great self portrait.
