Bloggers to the Rescue

I've been knitting a sweet blue elephant toy for Ethan's birthday, but ran out of yarn. No problem, I thought, I remember where I got it... and started to look online. The yarn's been discontinued, so in desperation, I posted on a few bloggers' sites... people who said they'd made something with the yarn, hoping to find a skein or two, to finish the little elephant's head. Two bloggers came to my rescue: Lorraine and Geek Knitter. Thanks!! If I had an award or two, I'd send it to them. As it is, I'll share the love:

I'll post as soon as I finish... I'm to the trunk; now have to dig around and find my double-pointed needles. :)

oh good! I can't wait to see pics! I'd love to be able to knit somthing for P - but alas, I'm too lazy to learn how to knit! Thankfully he has adoring "aunties" who make him beautiful hand made things! :) but still, it's not the same as Mama workin' hard to make you something! I know Ethan will treasure his gift! Hard to believe he will be one before too long!

I know! The year has flown by. I'm sure you can relate. :) I've been knitting since I was about 10, so it's not hard for me to pick up a quick project... and little boy things are quick. You'd probably enjoy it.
