Winter is a strange season. Sometimes it's cold and before you get a change to knit a hoodie, it's warm again. My hoodie sweater is progressing slowly. One reason being that I am knitting fronts and back at the same time. That means oooodles of stitches on the needles. One row takes about 10 -15 minutes, depending on who or what is distracting my attention to the stitches.
On the other note, I made a froggie last night, and fed him this morning. He's now happily befriending a snowlady who came to life yesterday. She had been rolling on the snow, and came to see the little froggie. I hope she doesn't think that this froggie is "THE Prince" That would be fun . Hmmmm. Maybe we need a prince, too. Oh, well, I need to finish the hoodie, otherwise I will be very upset when the spring arrives.
The froggie pattern is the one from Amigurumi girl.blog
I don't have a pattern or instructions for the Snowgirl. She was done with crocheted balls, sewn together, and beads for eyes, nose and buttons. The scarf is chains and then sc on each ch. Hands the same as scarf.
