Notes

Hubby very appreciative and happy. Outside pics when the stars align…

12/25/14 It did not make under the tree but it did make between the towels (for blocking.)

update ~ I’ve been weaving ends in for weeks due to stranded intarsia. Once these endless elephant ends are woven, it will be a beautiful, even fabric.

well, the bad news is hubby’s birthday has now come and gone. The good news is I am weaving in ends, which means, I now see the light to the end!

BIG PROBLEM!!!

ok, we’ve slipped it on and it’s looking good! Now, when I say slipped it on, first hubby did as that is who the sweater is for and then I did and now I WANT ONE!!! So, now I find myself looking for colors for ME…. I might just be knitting elephants ‘til the cows come home. hahahaha

fronts nearly done!

I’ve got his back!

ok, MUCH better elephants. Changed needle size and stitch count to get the elephants larger. Think we can move forward, now…

unsure about these elephants…. now, you can hear the trumpeting of my horn (of dismay)….might need to go backwards before I go forwards…. ugh…..

Can’t you just hear their voices and feel the earth move? Impressionistic in every way….

gauge time and neither of these are going to work unless I want the sweater to fit the elephant…

confirmed.
