Knitting is always a good option for me when I'm not feeling like having to hide in my sewing/craft room. I like that I can be "watching" tv or spending time with my son while knitting.
I found this adorable Elephant knitting pattern for FREE through Ravelry.com! It probably did take a few hours and would most likely not be an ideal first knitting pattern. But it's just so cute.
I absolutely LOVE the little tail!
I suppose I'm on a little elephant kick. This guy is REALLY cute! Don't you think?!
I will add for those of you with a dirty mind, my husband so kindly pointed out that this looked like something "else" before the ears were added. Get your mind out of the gutter, honey!
