A Knitted Elephant

Remember when I asked if you could guess what I was knitting in this post last week?  Laura Larson and Miss Moe both got the answer right.  It's an elephant!

I made the elephant for my niece's first birthday, and I used a pattern out of Sarah Keen's totally adorable book, Knitted Wild Animals.  (Book photo courtesy of Amazon.)

I thought the hardest part of the project was sewing all the pieces together while keeping them symmetrical.  Luckily, I think I succeeded.

I think the birthday girl liked it too.  Here she is opening her presents at her Minnie Mouse themed party:

Happy birthday, Elizabeth!
