Silly Elf

When I saw the pattern for this Holiday Elf, I knew that I needed to put all of my other knitting projects on hold to start this. Size 2 (2.75 mm) knitting needles, and KnitPicks Palette inHanddyed Red and Green, White and Almond (store dyed.)

This Elf knit up really quickly. I didn't even mind weaving in ends as much as I usually do!

Although I have been weighing most of my projects recently, this one seemed to be small enough that it isn't worth it.

I didn't have small enough beads for his eyes, but I think I love him just the way he is
Isn't he delightful?

Idea: make a little halloween elf? Black and orange..... Of course, I have no orange... oh wait I may still have orange!! I never did end up making a Halloween elf... maybe next year....
