Floyd and a contest

I received some great names for Elephant,... so many that I'm glad I picked randomly because I wouldn't be able to choose just one! Our winner is Lauren who thought that our little alcoholic elephant should be named Floyd. Floyd was very happy about this, he felt it really suited him. After I told him about the good news, someone else wandered in.

First contest!

Here it is! The first contest on my brand new blog! This is the first amigurumi in a group I call Safari Sidekicks. He was knit, felted and embellished in the span of about 3 hours. When he was feeling better after being stitched up, I had a brief interview with him.

"Hi. My name is Elephant, and I'm an alcoholic. What drove me to the bottle? Lack of a proper name."
