Get your ply on

12 June, 2008 at 12:32 pm (knitting, spinning)

SO glad I went for the Navajo ply. So, so glad.

I have the first roll of singles nearly all plied, so maybe I’ll have finished yarn by next week? I can hope, anyway.

But wait, what’s this?

Knitting content!? It is! I think fiddly toys might be the cure for my knitting malaise. This guy took me maybe six hours; I used this pattern kinda, but made a lot of mods obviously. I used fingering weight yarn and US0/2mm needles to get a tiny frog, worked the whole thing in the round (with a magic cast on and a grafted shut mouth), duplicate stitched the eyes, and basically winged the legs. Paperclips are helping to keep the frog standing, and I worked a picot bind off to make the toes (I need to spray-block those, though–they keep curling!). His Rav link is thisaway in case you want to, you know, make my day by favoriting him.

Here’s a picture of him on my keyboard, for scale:

    Your frog is so cute! I love the color of the green you chose, and his eyes – they give him personality.
