planning the eyes
Yesterday I posted that I'd been too impatient to finish the toes of the second hind leg. And felt a bit ashamed of that admission. So when I got home from work last night, I buckled down to get that done, as well as the rest of the body top and the front legs. The eyes come next, but I don't think I'm going to follow the instructions here. When Aerulan knit her frog, she worked the eyes with plastic safety eyes and crochet eyelids - and I just love the look of that. I'm not much of a crocheter but surely I can manage these few stitches. While we're out running errands this morning, I hope to pick up some safety eyes at the craft store. That way I can work the eyes, attach the front legs, and start the underside of the body through the hockey game tonight. With Sidney Crosby and the Penguins in town, I don't like the Leafs' chances. But chances are I can finish the Tree Frog in the next day or two!
