Elephant Finger Puppet

Working on a elephant finger puppet for my son. Made with Patons sock yarn in grey. Used it to learn the magic loop technique (a shout out to my co-worker who taught me this excellent little trick). No more DPNs! Yeah. So the elephant came about when I started making a practice swatch to learn this magic loop trick. Knitting along on my new size 2 Addis, and realized that this little loop looked a lot like a glove finger, or a finger puppet. Click - it's grey. Click - it's an elephant. Just had to pick up a few stitches on either side of the top, play with some increases and decreases, and the ears were born. Then I stuck an i-cord on the front and called it a trunk. Next stop is eyes (probably tonight) and I'm done. Final question -- will my son like it? And -- what does an elephant say anyway??

I meant what I said, I said what I meant:
An elephant is faithful, one hundred percent.
