Enter Elijah, a precious stuffed elephant designed by Ysolda Teague. I’ve taken a break from Clapotis until I decide what to do. So far this pattern is fun, very easy to follow, and exactly meeting my expectations. It’s a baby shower gift for a shower next weekend. I thought about February Baby, but wanted something she wouldn’t outgrow. The color is more fucshia than shown here. The future mommy says everything in her baby’s room is pink, and I feared bucking the trend, so I went as wild as I could find in the color family.
I’ll probably rip out a couple of inches of Clapotis and alternate every other row with the new ball. I don’t think I can handle ripping it all out. More to come on that front. First this baby needs another leg, ears, arms, and eyes.
