a box of eyes


They're here - a whole bunch of safety eyes! Figuring that shipping was going to cost me more than the eyes themselves, I thought I may as well order a whole box of them. Maybe I'll make several more frogs! I have lots more of this Patons Look at Me sport yarn. Or maybe I'll try other Amigurumi. If this frog is anything to go by, they're very fun to knit.

Gavin remarks that eyes look more like Teddy Bear eyes than Frog eyes. And he's right, because THEY ARE Teddy Bear eyes. But I am undeterred. Check out Aerulan's photo. I'm hoping they'll turn out like that. Today I'm going to finish my second sock. So that tomorrow I can turn my full attention to the frog.

The bear eyes will work, If you would like something frog like, I have cats eyes... I actually use them when I make fish and they work really well. I wouldn't mind giving you a pair, if you're interested email me at wanderingcatstudio@hotmail.com and I can send you some pictures
