Another elephant!  

Here's another little baby! I do love making these elephants. This one's ordered by badly_knitted. Anyone else like to put in an order? *polishes crochet hooks*

I started a new project last night too, one that I've been sitting on for a while. Back in October, I went to the Fibre Flurry yarn fair in Birmingham and came home (of course) with a bag of goodies. One of them was a skein from the Natural Dye Studio, with an accompanying pattern. Yesterday, I wound the skein into balls and started the pattern. It's gorgeous stuff!

The yarn is Angel 2 ply lace, in Aqua, 70% baby alpaca, 10% cashmere, 20% silk, and it feels heavenly! So soft and light!

Here's the pattern - Queenie's Clementine Crochet scarf.

And here's the first motif. I've done four now, and I have to stop and admire them each time I complete one. *sighs happily* 110 to go!

(I always have two or three projects on the go at one time, so there will probably be more elephants and hats, etc, happening too).

That elephant is awesome! And I love the star/shawl, that wool just crochets so beautifully. Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you! I was very pleased with the way she turned out. And the wool for the shawl is working up very well. I have to do it when I'm able to concentrate, it's so fine!

The scarf is going to be so pretty in that lovely yarn!

(And of course Primrose the elephant is gorgeous, I'm looking forward to gettingher!)

Thank you! I'm so pleased that Primrose arrived safely (if slightly squashed). I've ordered some more of that yarn, it was so nice to work with.

Elephant Mummy here! I've ordered some more of that yarn because it was so good for making elephants with.
