YoP Rnd 2: Week 3 Update!

So this week for my YoP update I have another FO and a WiP! :)

I finished up my first dragon from the Choose Your Own Dragon Adventure. There is still a debate in my house as to what kind, if any, horns he may or may not be getting at some point but here he is!


Showing off her wings, ears and arrow tail
I'm just now realizing that both of those pictures have a convenient baby sized finger print on the lens in the same spot...argh! Will have to give the lens a good cleaning!

As for my WiP this week, I started the Paintbox Frog from Classic Elite's Quick Knits book. The frog is originally done in seed stitch but a) I have a bad attention span with turning seed stitch into accidental ribbing (especially with increases and decreases involved) and b) I'm not really all that much of a fan of seed stitch's look so I just went with regular stockinette stitch on it.

Obviously nothing has been blocked so hopefully you weren't looking for a "pretty" picture on this one!


So yes my friends, if you can believe it, that pile will become a cute, cuddly frog shortly. I promise!

  18. I love seeing piles of 'pieces' like that - it makes the whole process of making toys seem more magical somehow! You sew them together and suddenly POW you have a frog :) Looking forward to seeing him.

    And the dragon is dead cute. Even with the smudges ;D

  19. Oh so cute! I think that frog will be simply adorable. Don't you just hate fingerprints on the lens? Most often around here, it is my fault!
