FO Friday: Flapjack Frogs

At last, I have some FO photos of the Flapjack Frogs to share with you!  These knit up pretty quickly - each frog body took only a few hours, and I made all of the arms and legs over the course of a weekend.  Sometimes, the hardest part of toy-making is sitting down and attaching all the fiddly bits and weaving in yarn ends - I find the best thing to do is pick a "finishing day" and allow enough time to get properly psyched up.  To that end, I finished knitting these cute little guys and sorted all of my "frog parts" into piles for finishing at a later date.  Last weekend, I got the spring cleaning bug, followed quickly by the finishing bug - and thus these frogs came to life!  I love the way they turned out, and it made me realize that I need to get back to toy-making in earnest.

  1. Cool frogs :)
    And I agree, the seaming and stuffing and so on, often takes longer time than the actual knitting...

    1. Thanks! It's so funny how that's true - and in my case, getting myself into the right frame of mind is a good 2/3 of the battle! Always worth it in the end - just need to remind myself of that more often!
