I have been trying to craft while getting better. I have Garren's frog done and all of the boy's family gifts will be sent off tomorrow.
Yarn: Bernat Softee Chunky
Color: Hot Lime
Content: 100% acrylic
Needles: US 5
Pattern: Ribbit from Spud & Chloe by Susan B. Anderson
Modifications: I didn't make the toes, I don't think they are needed, nor do I think they would be appropriate for a toy for such a small child.
As always, it was a quick knit, when I was actually knitting on it. His eyes look a little funky, but that is because I am still learning with the whole french knot thing. In the end he's about 6" high when sitting down. He seems like the perfect size for little hands, not too big and yet not too small. I hope he likes it.

On another crafting note, I have joined TAST 2. Each week there will be a featured stitch to work with and be creative with. I want to do more embroidery and try out some crazy quilting. I think this will be the perfect thing to inspire my creativity and help me learn more.
