You will see that my little fellow is squatter than the example on Owlishly. I think I can attribute this to a) I tend to stitch too tightly, and b) my yarn isn't worsted-weight. Anyway, I think I might end up making two more of these (using different size hooks) to have a little trio of multi-sized elfs.
This amazing ornament was found a few days ago in the Christmas stuff at Wal-Mart! It was the only one left, and I had to have it. The bird silhouette goes perfectly with the bird decals in my kitchen. I would like a few more of these and make a cluster. Best part: it is only $2!! Better go check out Wal-Mart. They have some really cool, vintagey ornaments. Can you say acorns and mushrooms?
More SQUISHY cuteness tomorrow...off to dance class with the kiddies ☺
ps...I apologize for the weird spacing and issues with my hyperlinks lately. Is anyone else having this problem with Blogger? The preview looks fine, but it is all wonky on my blog page :P
