Jimmy Jumbo Knitted Elephant

I have just finished a few weeks of knitting this little stuffed toy elephant - Jimmy Jumbo.
Thoroughly back into knitting now, but this is a one off made as a present for my Dad who collects elephants. I don't think I could make knitted goods to sell , they take way too long, so you won't be seeing any in my shop.

I found the pattern which is from the '50's at The Vintage Pattern House on Etsy.
Its been perfect knitting weather, sitting in front of the fire, and as I havn't been feeling like going into my studio much ( its way too cold to be doing ceramics right now and I needed a break from a few full on months of it anyway)
He is about 7 inches tall, and a 'footish' long
