I really need to get past this frog addiction...


It started out innocently enough with the poison dart frogs. I just wanted to so something challenging with some really incredible colors from nature. Then I found Roman Sock's blog and her Instant crochetification pattern for -- you guessed it -- more frogs. Well, actually toads... but the pattern itself says:

"According to wiki, 'any distinction between frogs and toads is irrelevant,' so you can call these little darlings what you want!"

So.. I've been making frogs... er, um... I mean, toads. I have this image in my mind of a whole bunch of frogs in one of my brother's old aquariums. Maybe even a little sign that says "don't lick the frogs..." er, um... I mean, toads.

I have finished five of the little guys so far and I am WAY addicted to this pattern. It's cute and simple and works up in a little more than an hour. Granted, I think there are some mistakes in it... for example, in one of the rounds it tells you to dc (I think it's supposed to be sc). But, if you have made a couple of other amigurumi patterns before tackling this one, you should be able to figure out what's needed.

Well, my fingers are itching to finish frog number six, so off I go. Hopefully, I'll be able to lick this frog addiction and get back to some other new patterns soon!

  1. I don't know why you want to kick the frog addiction. They are so adorable. You MUST add them to your Etsy shop and share them with the world - Toad-ay! (I couldn't help myself - forgive me?)
    Oh, and I found you because of my Crafts Blog Widget thingie.
    Hugs and prayers

  3. Boston Micro Fabrication is the world leader moisture wicking panties in micro-precision 3D printers utilizing Projection Micro Stereolithography (PµSL) technology. Many leading firms worldwide are adopting PµSL to 3D print true microstructures with ultra-high printing resolution (2µm~50µm) and printing tolerance (+/- 10µm ~ +/- 25µm). People are getting excited about Elementum 3D’s capacity to broaden present metal capabilities, which is able to} immediately result on} all of our lives by providing safer, stronger and lighter products. In fact, the analysis has eased the resistance that a small company often encounters and has helped create partnerships and construct curiosity to keep Jacob’s idea alive. Jacob’s old flame was chemistry, after which he saw molten metal being poured…bye bye chemistry.
