I got the okay from the designer, Audrey, to talk about the test-knitting project that I'll be doing for her. I'm going to be knitting a lion hand puppet.
The following two pictures are hers. I'll have pictures of my own shortly.
Isn't he adorable? You can see more pictures on Audrey's Ravelry page, click here.
I now have the pattern and it also includes patterns for a dog, a rabbit and a dinosaur. I've read over the pattern and it appears to be very well-written. There are a lot of pictures to help the knitter to understand exactly what they need to do - good for a new knitter and reassuring for an experienced knitter.
When I'm finished with the knitting and giving any suggestions that I may have to Audrey, the lion will be sent to Calgary to my grandson. I just know that he's going to love it. But, who's going to have the most fun - grandma as the knitter, or Braydon?
