I just love Ysolde Teague's knitting patterns. I have a few of her books and have knit several pieces. One of my favorites is Elijah. I knit one four years ago for my now nephew and had a hard time giving him away, honestly. He was just so snugly and the perfect shape to be held. I managed to part with him but I've been longing to knit another one ever since.
One of David's co-workers saw a picture of the first one I knit and requested one for her soon-to-be born little boy. We talked colors and I set forth to make another adorable little guy. This time I made his feet green which I just love. It gives just enough color and interest to make him interesting without going crazy.
Maybe someday I'll make an Elijah for our home. It will be turquoise most likely though...duh :)
