A compilation of patterns J&J have discussed in so much depth that we MUST keep the info for posterity in... the interwebs.
Frog and Toad pattern available on Frog & Cast by Kristina McGowan
Jean: How many people have to send this to me for me to actually knit it?!
Jenna: I'm knitting it.
J&J: Knitting simultaneously and sending a bajillion photos... scrollable below of course.
I guess you could say we are smitten ;)
We loved this pattern. Frog&Toad inspired us in so many ways:
we knit tiny clothes (Jenna made all the stripes, mustards, and pinks. There isn't one photo of Jean's sweaters for toad)
we knit other tiny frogs and toads - more on those patterns in future posts
we used tiny needles and weren't in "sleeve-hell"... it is a feeling!
we made wrapping paper
we made a baby blanket - check it out in Jean's Ravelry page
we decided to try different eyes
Things we didn't love about this pattern:
cutting into the face to create the eyes
the filling suggested in the pattern was messy and hard to keep inside the stuffed guys without extraordinary mending on the seams - we used less "crushed walnuts and lavender" each time we made a frog or toad
But we sure didn't stop with these guys... check out our next post.
