June's Toys - Elephants

Another gorgeous day here in Somerset,   I thought you might like to see my elephants,  Lizzy asked for a girl and a boy and I managed to knit the sailor as well.
The girl has a pink dress  with a pink and white bubble wool hem and a pink bow on her head unfortunately the bow does not show up too well  but its there.

The Boy has white shorts, and pale and dark blue striped top 

And below is my sailor Elephant with his black and white hat and white collar.
I use buttons for the eyes as they are very small only about six inches high.   Its an old pattern and one that I love to knit there are so many possibilities with this pattern.

Hope you are enjoying the weather and until we meet again stay safe, don't over do the sun and get burned,  something I have to watch,   as I am very fair skinned.
Have a nice day
