"This lion “spoke” to me at a zoo. I captured his expression and decided I needed to hook it. I used leftover wool from a fruit project for his eyes. In my other project, the wool was used for leaves on fruit. The mane is one of my favorite parts and helped me learn how to hook long hair using different wools. I found I needed to have contrast to allow the individual hairs to show vs it looking like one solid area. Hunter is the cover of my book, Hooking Animals."
