Welcome Leo

Well finally...






Leo looks kind of cute. I gave him a friendly face. Mr S loves him. He has a book with a reference to a 'soft furry lion' that 'goes roar roar roar' - we read it several times this afternoon, with Mr S clutching Mr Leo!
The pattern comes from the V&A website (as I have previously mentioned) and Mr Leo was knitted in Rowan Scottish Tweed 4ply.

Awww, I love him. Great job, I especially like the knot in the tail.

I was wondering if you'd had any problems with the 'underbody' section - as i'm currently trying to knit 'leo the lion' and contacted the V&A concerning it and they said i should ask you! I ran out of stitches to decrease at about the 46th row! i am happy to finish it with my bodged version, but i was just wondering if it was my mistake, or something up with the pattern!

thanks

ps, i hope my leo looks as good as yours once i'm done!
