It has been since I last bought yarn!

We interrupt this blog (and my weekly knitting progress) to show you something adorable.

This is Orlando.


Orlando is my sister's frog, who spent the week with me last week while his "mom" was in Mexico. Orlando also had the unfortunate luck of spending a very cold week in Calgary. In fact I couldn't look right at Orlando without feeling cold- so I had to do something about it. As a knitter- this presents an interesting challenge.


I did what any knitter presented with the same dilema, I designed the frog a dashing cable sweater! Doesn't he look dapper?


Pattern: My Own
Yarn: Bernat Baby Softee leftovers in "antique white"
Needles: US size 5

The hardest part of this pattern was figuring out the sleeve decreases- given that the little froggy has such differently shaped arms. But overall- I'm so pleased with how this sweater turned out!

Now... back to my regularly, neglected projects!  (And we can all sigh a collective relief that Orlando now has a sweater to keep him warm.)
