Frogging Froglessly

Standard

Hehe! I hope that my title didn’t confuse you, did it?

Anyway, I just finished a test knit on Ravelry for Suzanne Nielsen(shezam on Ravelry) and it’s absolutely adorbs! I’m sure that you’ve guessed by now that it has something or other to do with frogs, and your right!

Isn’t he(or she) just the cutest? This wonderful pattern is called Froggy Cloth(there’s your link to the pattern) And it was pretty darn quick!

Suzannes’ pattern call for filling the eyes with ping-pong balls so that little froggy can float in the tub but, I did a little thinking and thought, “What If I filled the eyes with soap instead?” So now he gets a little foamy ’round the eyes when I use him 😛

Challenge, Shmallenge!

Standard

^^^^^^I’ve completed my designer’s challenge as you can see ^^^^^^

Yippee, yippee!!! I’m putting pics up in the group as we speak…talk…type? Ah well you get the point!

          I will be, fairly soon, posting a “Call for Testers”(that sounds so official) in the Free Pattern Testers group on Ravelry if anyone is in the mood to test and are really really forgetful, feel free to use my contact info here, to reach me and I’ll remind you when I set up the thread 😀

          While we(meaning me) are on this topic, I’ll take this opportunity to bore you to death with lots of words with pretty pictures in between ;-D

I used a really…erm…well…different(?) technique for the “Blocking” part of the challenge

  I used stones to “full” the top of the mitten because I thought it looked a bit…Blauh before that 🙂

I wanted to add all sorts of little details to the mittens but that just made it impossible to finish! I wanted to have little windows and doorways and criss-crossy designs all over but then I remembered that I couldn’t with crochet :-/ So please imagine that these are the most intricate of intricate mittens that you’ve ever seen just to make me feel better 🙂

Thank you so much for looking 🙂 🙂 :-/ 😛 😦 🙂 🙂
