Pattern: Elijah by Ysolda
Needles: US2 Crystal Palace Bamboo DPN’s
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Yellow #001 – 58 grams
Mods: None!

Once again, I cannot stress how much I love love love this pattern. Unlike the last Elijah I knit, I used bamboo DPN’s this time and found it was a lot eaier to pick up the stitches on his body for the arms and legs. I attribute that mostly to the 6″ bamboo DPN’s versus the 8″ Inox ones I used last time. The yarn is beautiful, although a bit splitty so at time gave me fits. I think his right ear is a bit crooked, but I think that gives him a little charm, right?

One gift down for 2008!!
