WIP wrestling match #6 - a finished frog
Finally! Almost two years after knitting almost an entire frog, I sat down to knit the four front toes. And in less than a half hour the toes were knit and attached. The frog is done.
This pattern is awesome. Really. Lots of wrap and turn short rows, lots of kitchener stitch, but lots of awesome. We dissected frogs in grade school biology and the shaping of the legs and body evoke all sorts of memories from that time ... creepy, but awesome.
When I attempted this pattern, it was the most complicated thing I'd ever done. And now, with a couple more years of knitting experience, it might be a good idea to try it again. Well, maybe after all the other WIPs are completed!
