ravelry reverie

The start of the New Year means looking back and looking forward.

Looking forward, Jo has finally convinced me to add pictures to my Ravelry account. And this means looking back to find pictures of projects that have since found new homes.

How I wish I'd photographed all those little mittens-on-strings I knit while nannying. But luckily I still have pictures of Jumbo:

He was knit using the pattern in Zoë Mellor's Knitted Toys: 25 Fresh and Fabulous Designs. But as I wasn't keen on the felt ears in the original design, I knitted and attached the elephant ears from Joelle Hoverson's Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.

Now looking forward again, I'm wondering if I should knit another Jumbo: the perfect companion for our elephant in the living room!
