IMG_1480When Eli the squirrel came running to the house he could hardly talk he was so excited. I urged him to slow down so I could make some sense from all the chatter spewing from his mouth. And then I made him repeat it twice before I was certain that he’d said what I thought he said~~

I would never have imagined that some day I’d find myself in the position of trying to knit clothes for an elephant! Really, think about it. How would you go about it? That’s exactly the quandary I found myself in when Eli the squirrel came running to the house to announce for the second time, that we have an elephant in the Bunny Garden.IMG_1453 The first time he came bursting with excitement & news of an elephant, I didn’t believe him, but to my astonishment~ and delight, there was Rosy, a beautiful little elephant, right there in my garden! Had I not seen her with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it . But now two elephants?? How often does one find even one elephant in their garden~ and now I have two?

And that, I do!! I’m happy to introduce Alexander, the newest – and largest- member of the Bunny Garden! Not only is Alexander the second elephant in the garden, he’s the second animal to come to the garden carrying a balloon! In fact, his sighting of the bunny Amanda’s balloon is how Alexander came to the Garden. Alexander is a young circus elephant who ran away from the circus~ taking his favorite balloon with him. When he saw Amanda’s balloon bobbing along the top of the bushes, he followed it and ended up in our Garden, face-to-face with Amanda!

Alexander is an adorable, hand-knit elephant with hand embroidered eyes and a IMG_1437handsome outfit consisting of a pair of britches, hand knit from beautiful alpaca-blend yarn with two long straps that cross in back and button in front at the waistband. Alex also has a marine-blue- colored hand-knit, sleeveless sweater to wear with his knit pants~ and of course, a beautiful multi-colored, knit balloon! When he holds his balloon, he prefers to sit very still, otherwise, he explained, the balloon easily blows over- He can easily straighten it up again if necessary, as it’s on a thin wire stem that easily bends into shape.

Alexander measures approximately 11″ tall from his seated position to the top of his head. He’s completely hand knit from a light-gray, chunky weight yarn that is 80% acrylic and 20% wool. He is stuffed with polyfil stuffing to retain his ample shape. Both Alexander and his clothing may be gently hand washed in warm water with a mild soap if needed, then laid out to air-dry.

Because he’s a knit doll, he isn’t intended to be a young child’s rough play toy. He does however, love gentle hugs and would be a great companion for an older child who knows how to play gently. He makes a great collectible and heirloom piece, as well as adds warmth and personality to any room’s decor. He would be an adorable addition to the decor of a child’s room. Alexander is loaded with personality! One of a kind and heirloom-quality, Alexander definitely makes a very lovable and special gift that you’ll be delighted to give to a favorite person. young or old!IMG_1439

~*~ Alexander, created by hand, with love~ guaranteed 100% to love you back! ~*~
