So, in the midst of this wonderful world of tigers some of us have been up to, I had asked that ya’ll send me your pics of your tigers as they’re completed. Hazel Donnelly was the first. Look at her tiger. How fun is that? I mean, come on. She calls it, “wonky and wobley,” but I have to say I think he looks downright fun and cuddly. So, send me your tiger pics! I’d love to show them off!
My own tiger is almost done. I’ve finished the head body and limbs, now all that’s left is to assemble the little guy. Now, I’ve opted to use Lionbrand’s Fisherman’s Wool, making use of the different shades and hues of browns and creme to bring my little guy to life.
And speaking of Lionbrand, I’m so grateful to them for their continued support of me. I truly am. For the last two years they have sent me countless skeins of yarn just at whim. “Thought you could use some more Fisherman’s Wool for your bears!” And boom! A nice big box arrives. Just before my birthday, they sent another box of yarn with an adorable note that read “Here’s to another wonderful year of teddy bears!” So, I’m intensely loyal to them for their kindness and gratitude and to show my appreciation I opted to make a lion. Yup! In honor of Lionbrand, I knit up this cute little lion to add to my bestiary of patterns I hope to publish at some point. So, many MANY continued thanks to Lionbrand Yarns for being exceptionally cool people and doing what they can to help a little guy like me with his roar. The lion is 12″ tall from head to toe, (he even has a tail!), is made completely of Fisherman’s Wool and is ready to ship with a signed card by me. There is ONLY ONE so if you’d like to adopt him, click here.
Ok. Weather is lovely, smile is bright, gonna get back to work!
