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.
