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

hahaha, that is so awesome!  I am a vegetarian so I would have much preferred to dissect a knitted frog than a real one.  You did a great job executing this pattern, and the cork board to display it makes it even more awesome.

You should get some T-pins to pin him down with, that is what we always had to use when dissecting at least.

but you can call me Liz.

This is the cutest gross thing ever.  Cheesy Poor Mr Froggy though!

I know at least 3 people on my christmas list who MUST have this. Thanks for the tip!

When I dissected my high-school frog, I got one that clearly was not male, but didn't have the egg sac-y bits of a female. Turned out I'd cut up a formalda-hyded virgin. (Which, as it happens, is how I felt in high school, too.)

I'm betting the young lady frog was more upset, but my trauma has lasted longer...

"For what do we exist, but to laugh at our neighbors and be laughed at in our turn?"
