I started knitting on her in April and she has just missed her eyes, ears and trunk. So today I finally got myself together and finished her. I'm not that pleased with her, I do think she remind me more of a mole (whitout the ears...) But beauty comes from the inside and Eirin loves her, so I'm not going to change her in any way. I did knit the trunk a couple of times though.
I droped the flowerchain around her head, the bow on the back of her skirt and the flower she should hold in her trunk. Eirin didn't want the flowers and I'm just happy to have less small thing to knit and assemble ;) The eyes are two buttons. I tried to sew the eyes with chain stitch.... But that's not something I'm good at.
