I finished up knitting Ysolda's Eljah pattern last night. My gal got named Pemberlie, and a little flower headband.

That is so cute!  I've never had luck knitting stuffed toys, they always stretch out of shape when I stuff them.  What yarn did you use?  If I were you I would not be able to give the elephant up!

Thanks Smiley I used Cascade Eco Cloud, since I don't plan on giving her away Wink I felt ok using better yarn.

When I make toys, I knit on smaller needles than the yarn suggests (not always what the pattern calls for) and when I stuff, I shape as I stuff (making sure round areas stay round, pinch areas that are supposed to have an indentation) and don't over stuff.

Oh, it turned out lovely!  I have had that pattern for a long while now and still havent got to knitting it.  But seeing your cute little grey elephant really makes me want to finish my current project and start on the elephant!

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
