Maybe it would look more like an elephant if I'd done it in grey. Kavi isn't as into elephants (or lions, or dragons) as I am anyway -- right now, her favorite animal is either monkey (she says, 'ook ook') or owl (she can actually say 'owl' very enthusiastically when we point to the owl photo). So perhaps this little critter will wander off to another child's home, and I'll take another stab at one for Kavi with a monkey or owl. We'll see. :-)
Off to finish the arms now, in a quiet Saturday morning. I do think these will go a lot faster with practice; I read another blog this morning where someone mentioned making the owl in an afternoon. So I'm just slow.
It still feels very fast to me, starting and finishing a project in a week. Why in the world did I start crocheting with afghans??? No wonder it took me years to finish a project -- so hard to stay motivated!
