FO Friday

It's Friday and it's time for a finished object. This week I finished up the lion I was working on. What a quick knit! It took me less than two weeks and that's pretty fast for me since I don't have a lot of time to devote to knitting.

There were parts of it that were a bit challenging. Originally when I sewed on the mane it looked less like a mane and more like a clown's collar. I was much happier when I redid it. This was also my first experience with short rows too. They weren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be. Plus I got to check something off my 2012 Resolutions list!

I gave this to a coworker for her daughter and she totally loved it!

  1. I want to make this cute lion one day. Nice to meet him here again. :-)
    Wish you a nice weekend!

  2. So adorable! I love the ears! They remind me of Shrek ears.

  3. That is so cute. I love crochted/knitted animals. I think the mane looks great. :) Love the name of your blog by the way.

  4. I think the mane looks great! It's so satisfying to check something off your resolutions list! Great job!
