I saw the beautiful turquoise deer sweater made by Granted Clothing and desperately wanted one, but couldn't afford to pay $300 for it.  I therefore decided to make my own... but ended up playing with the idea of using different animals, until finally coming up with this version, featuring woolly mammoths!  When they clone the first mammoth, there's gonna be a lineup a mile long outside the zoo waiting for the wool.  The spinners will be first, and then they'll just hand it back to the knitters and crocheters.

I've actually been thinking about doing some more designs... they'd all be extinct animals, of course.  Maybe a saber-toothed tiger or a triceratops.

Mammoths are cool. Hope to see more of your extinct animal designs.
