I found myself addicted to making amigurumi. Just a couple days after I completed the hippo project, I started making an amigurumi elephant with the same skein of yarn. This time, I followed a free pattern from Lion Brand. The result looked different from the one shown in the pattern.

It took me a while to write this post (please forgive my laziness). I already gave the elephant, along with the hippo I made earlier, to my father for his birthday. He seemed to like them. I also gave him my very first amigurumi bunny (which I will show in my next entry) to wish him good luck in the Year of Rabbit.
