a frog, almost


So that's him, almost ... just a bit of work left on his front legs. I still have to graft to create his elbow joints and a couple of toes on each front limb. And then he's done. I'm really, really happy with how he turned out. The short row shaping of the arm and leg muscles is oddly effective. He's a bit smaller than I expected - about 10" long from hind toes to snout - but still a good size. If ... when I do another, I'll have to remember to moderate the amount of stuffing in the hind legs and bulk up on the stuffing in his body. I've got lots of this Patons Look At Me yarn left so there may be another couple of frogs on the needles in the next few weeks.
