Destashing with some cute little Ellies

16 Jul

Today while roaming around on Facebook I found these sweet little Elephants

They come from Jen over at Jam Made. The Minimen saw them and just like me fell in love and of course both demanding one to be made for each of them.

So this afternoon I got started destashing some of my grandma’s yarn (I knew I would find a use for bubblegum pink yarn!)

Here’s how I am going so far…..

I’ll keep you updated as I go.

    Wow they are so cute! How difficult is it so far? (Saw you have made the heads now) I would love to try but I’m a complete novice 🙂

      They are pretty easy, it is just the same stitch done in rounds uk treble/us dc. the hardest part is the last few rounds after it has been stuffed, it is difficult to manouver the hook. Have a go, don’t be scared. I have found that tackling things that are above my skill level only help me improve and boost my confidence.

        Almost missed this msg! Cool, I might see if I’m brave enough, they are just too adorable not to try. And yes you are albsolutely right about the ‘above skill level’ – Will let you know how I get on 🙂 Thanks
