Want vs. Need

A year ago, I fell in love with Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring blanket.

This week, this happened:

And there was much rejoicing!

Then, SIL put a bug in my ear. Mini-niece keeps stealing her birthday gift -- a knitted stuffie -- and perhaps I could make her one of her own? Nothing burns quite like having what you WANT to knit put on the back burner for what you feel you must knit.

Yellowphant. (Rav Link)
Pattern: Oliphaunt
Yarn was some leftover Cotton Ease.
Really quick to knit, pattern isn't half bad. Tiny elephant = cute.

I also crocheted a bug for Mini-Niece. No pics though -- I've exceeded my flickr allowance for the month.

That blanket looks great! And I must admit, Oliphaunt has been in my Rav Queue for a long time Ü It's so cute!

Great blanket! And... stuffies! I love stuffies. Not for kids, either... ahem.
