Progress on Eli...

I officially started Eli. I finished the head last night and have decided to enjoy knitting him piece by piece rather than obsessively working for hours on end until I finish - a tendency of mine. The instructions have been FABULOUS, which is why he is turning out so well...they make a difference! So far, I've learned the difference between m1l and m1r (thanks to youtube) and have gotten to practice ssk. All of this learning, so exciting!


  1. WOW !!! He is quite large !! What a perfect size though for a child's stuffed animal. I have thought about purchasing this pattern as well. You look so comfy and pretty in the first picture too :)

    Your stitch definition looks flawless ! You are doing such a great job on him. Will you kep the name 'Eli,' or give him a new one ??!

  2. Thanks, I'm really trying to be consistent with my stitches! The pattern is wonderful, really easy to follow...I'm sure it would be simple for you! He ended up a bit bigger than anticipated but he'll be a great size for Gatlyn. I think I'll let G pick the name...it is his.
