This is my first time knitting a toy! I used a slightly lighter weight yarn than the pattern calls for, so Elijah was a little smaller than I expected, but he’s still pretty cute.

He took a little less than month to knit up — during a baseball game or a movie a few nights each week. I would happily knit another Elijah!

My friends, Bertine and Zach, opened the gift I had enclosed him in just yesterday. Their two-year old niece, Kethry, loved Elijah right away — so I consider this project a success! (Though I still hope Baby Buchan loves him, too!)
