This elephant was accidentally shrunk by an evil scientist! Now eating a peanut takes him two days.

A Zoo

Every knitter I know has little bits and pieces of yarn left over from projects that they have completed.  With mine I have decided to create a mini zoo with little itty bitty knitting animals.  I already have a list of animals that friends and family want to see me try to make!  For most I will be using Pearl Cotton(I found a ton of the little 10 yard skeins leftover from when I was younger) and sock yarn.  The needles are US size 1, 0, 00, 000.  At least at the moment!
