Lion




I have so many ideas and not enough time! I've been wanting to make a lion for a long time - and here he is! Based on a fuzzy mitten pattern (who writes the best knitted stuffed animal patterns ever), I'm still not sure he is 'lion-like' enough. Next time, I'll position his ears on the side of his head more, and maybe make his snout narrower.


Anyway, he's soft and cuddly - he's knit from warm brown fuzzy alpaca, and I hope somebody loves him enough to take him home. He's in my Woolies shop. I hope you like him!

I have to admit, when I first saw him, I didn't know he was a lion, but I thought he was super cute!

Your lion is super cute so I am sure he will find a nice home real soon.
I too can relate to the so many ideas and not enough time syndrome.
I just started a new blog for etsy sellers and some marketing ideas.

I am getting ready to add custom monogrammed items to my store and trying to think of other unique baby items(picture head spinning).

Cute lion! Your blog makes me want to take up knitting! I just have to finish up these three quilts and 12 batik projects first!

I made a lion in 1979 and I still have it. You can see it with my Rabbit silver in the Sticky Buns http://pipersstuff.homestead.com/bunns.html
