The frog prince

Remember this little fella?  Nope, he's not a monkey ;0)

He's a frog prince!  He's from the book Knitted Toys by Laura Long (third entry for the craft book challenge this month!! and my first Christmas present this year!).  He was much easier to knit than that teddy I attempted - he was mainly in one piece, with just the arms and eyes separate. 
Sorry, it's sideways, Blogger and my computer conspired against me to make him sideways.  But look!  I took him outside - my first decent picture on this blog!


Linking up to the One Thing, One Week Challenge over at Amy's Creative Side

Oh! He's so very sweet!!

Nancy Lee said...

I love him, even if he is not a monkey. What is his crown made from?
I wish I could like knitting. I technically know how, I just don't enjoy it. I admire people like you who can make something so cute. The CK Magazine actually comes to me here. Even though I can't realistically afford the shipping to ever order anything... Have a wonderful evening!

SOOOOOO cute!! I love to knot, but I've never tried toys. I might have to get that book! Thanks so much for linking up :)

He's way cooler than a sock monkey.

Thanks for linking up to Creative Juice last week.

FYI: Creative Juice is on hiatus until the week of Valentine's Day because of The Beat the Winter Blues Party.

If you have any cool photo project you'd like to link up...stop by!
