Elijah and Joseph
Pattern: Elijah by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Berroco Remix in Patina and Smoke
Needles: US 4
These guys took a lot longer than I had planned! I've been too focused on school. I should knit more! I had hoped to get them done while it was still January because that is when my little second cousin's birthday is. He is my great aunt's first grandson and they don't live very close to one another. I don't think they get to see each other often, so I thought it might be a nice thing to knit something for the baby (who turned one last month) and a twin for my aunt. She collects elephants, so Elijah was the obvious choice.
I also picked up some yarn to give away! We got this Dream in Color Classy at the shop a couple weeks ago and everyone has been swooning over it! The colors are fantastic! I picked up this red skein in keeping with the blog theme. As I walked by the 55 gallon tank housing our older angelfish and a few bettas, I happened to notice a gorgeous little red female betta just hanging out, watching me walk by. She was so bright and pretty that I knew I'd have to give away some red yarn in her honor! I was going to take a picture of her too, but there are too many hiding places in that tank and I haven't seen her again. Maybe I'll hunt her down for next week's post.
If you would like to win this pretty skein, leave me a comment here telling me about your favorite childhood stuffed animal or a pretty fish you had or...something. I'll let you comment until 5pm Central Time Wednesday, February 15th (Lupercalia!), at which time, I will use a random number generator to pick the winner!
