Elephant Blanket

First of all I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year and thank you all once again for your support and the lovely comments you have left for me over the past year.
 I have been neglecting my Loving Hands work over the Christmas and New Year period and have been making lovely decorations and presents for myself, family and friends, but now it's back to work. The Loving hands Winter challenge comes to an end in three weeks time and all I have to show for it is the granny ripple blanket I made back in November.  I am also trying to complete an elephant blanket, lol yes you heard me correctly, we are making blankets for orphan elephants, you can read all about their plight here. Most of the ladies are making squares or strips that can be sewn into 4,6 or 8 foot blankets but I would like to complete a four foot square one myself, I would say it's a third of the way through and I am using my stash it's a good way of using up all the left over bits of yarn, this is where I am so far.  If I can discipline myself to just concentrate on this blanket then I should be able to finish it, but I have already started a little crochet jacket so we will have to see if I can finish it in time.
still a long way to go!


  1. Elephant blankets are such a cool idea!!

  2. I love your elephant blanket - very pretty with all the colors. :)

  3. What a lovely idea! But actually if they could just send me a baby elephant it could come into my bed at night... problem solved! :)x

  4. lol I don't think there would be much room left for you Stocki, they are so cute though:)


Thank you for your visit, I will always answer any questions but due to time constraints I'm not always able to reply to your comments, please keep them coming I read and appreciate each and every one. xx
