WOYWW - Noah Elf

Here's what I was working on this Wednesday morning

Even though I don't have children yet, I love the idea of Elf on the Shelf...probably because the pictures are just so much fun!  Chase and I live on a budget though...and those elves are expensive!  So I decided to venture out and try to crochet one. 

I used this pattern on Ravelry by Jill Watt 

Here's how it happened....

Looking good...I put pipe cleaner in the limbs so they would be flexible :)


Stevie (my blind kitten) wanted you all to know she helped too!

I tried to make the head according to the pattern directions, but I just couldn't... So I decided to wing it, and this is how it turned out!  Elves shouldn't be bald though...and I think his hat needs a little fringe!

Hmm...Did I accidentally make my elf look like my husband?  Maybe?

Stevie thinks this Noah Elf character may have turned out alright.  Noah Elf likes being kind to the animals :)



So that's my workspace this week!   Now I'm off to bit of blog hopping (and maybe clean my house too).

Peace and Love, y'all!

Talk about being creative! This is so motivating, Katie, that you just decided to crochet an Elf yourself and he turned out magnificently!! You could sell those! Happy WOYWW and Happy Holidays!! Hugs, Darnell #10

Never heard of 'Elf on a shelf' but then again - I am in the Netherlands... I DO love the idea though (but it's too late to find me the wool and go chrochet my own elf as I'm full planned with assignments...) Your elf turned out a nice guy - so if he looks like your hubs that's a good thing! Happy (belated) woyww, happy holidays and a hug from Holland. Marit #55

Oh well done - great job! Am only just becoming aware of Elf on the Shelf....it's bound to become a huge phemnomenonomonmonom, so lovely. I love the idea that you subconciously made your Elf to look like your Darling!
