First, a real elephant. We went to the circus this week. This was Girl #1's favorite part.
Then a swatched elephant.
This one shows the color better:
This one is obviously washed out, but you get a better sense of the shape. This will do far a good swatch, but I am still playing around with the overall shape. Both girls instantly said "Elephant!" when I asked them what it was. Still, his back and hindquarters are bugging me. A tad lumpy. The whole thing has to fit in an area about 22 stitches by 20 rows, so there's not much room.
