There hasn’t been nearly enough Leo on the blog lately, mainly because it’s hard to get him to be still long enough to take photos. Today I have lots of pictures of my little guy.
Not wanting Leo to be left out of the recent knitting, I whipped up a Lator Gator mitt in just one day. Since I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, it really isn’t warm enough to function as a mitten (which is why I only made one); it does make a great puppet. The pattern can be found in Stitch n Bitch Nation.
Rather than use the googly-eyes the pattern calls for, I tightly sewed on two black buttons. I also whipstitched the red and green pieces together using off white Baby Cashmerino. I am not great at making french knots, and the whipstitching looks enough like teeth to me.
