1  Mr Froggy in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lotte on: June 06, 2008 11:55:57 AM
I found a pattern on Etsy the other week that I just HAD to make.....

And so I present Mr Froggy  Grin



He looks like a cute knitted frog right?

But wait - it gets better....  he is not only a cute knitted frog, he is a cute knitted DISSECTED frog!    Cheesy



and here he is pinned to a mini-corkboard (made from a picture frame with cork put inside it) in all his glory



The pattern was bought from Etsy (craftyhedgehog) - and he is knitted in Knitpicks swish DK in Asparagus.  His "innards" are needlefelted.

This was such fun to knit - only took me an evening to make (it took me longer to get round to making the corkboard to display him on!).  I do need to get some matching pins to pin him on, but I am soooooo  pleased with him!  Cheesy

2  Moving Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lotte on: June 04, 2008 08:15:07 AM
This is the first finished object that I hvae posted so I hope it works!

These are my Moving Socks - so called because I cast them on the night before we moved house, and completed a huge chunk of the first one on the day of the move itself while waiting around for things.  The second one took me the best part of a month to complete however!





They are knitted using the Lorna's Laces One Hank Sock Pattern from Black Dog Designs.  I did modify the pattern very slightly, but not enough to make a major difference (main modification was the picot edging which I did slightly differently to the pattern so that there is a band of the contrast colour on the outside of the sock too. )  I also used slightly different sized needles - the pattern called for 3mmneedles but I didn't hve any in that size and used 2.75mm instead.  But they still fit  Grin

The main multi-coloured yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock yarn (1 hank of it).  I forget the exact colour name as I bought the yarn ages and ages ago, but it was something like "Sweetie".  The contrast yarn on the heels, toe and cuff is Knit Pick's Essentials sock yarn in Petunia. 

They are so comfy to wear that I seem to have been wearing them almost constantly since I finished them!
