Basket Full of Frogs

What can I say, the Purl Bee’s frog is addictive. I have six frogs in a small darning basket with me at work to sew them shut. I found some small black beads that will be sewn on as eyes on a few of the frogs. But there are still a few frogs on the sewing table to finish. So there will frogs a plenty in my studio for a little while. I am using up scraps to make the frogs and I have plenty

But in the meantime, I have some new yarns to show. I feel in love with the Frankenstein yarn from See Jayne Knits over on Etsy. The purple and green stripes just called to me. And the cute little skull stitch marker didn’t hurt. I can’t wait to cast on this yarn to make socks for me. And I ordered this yarn while Jayne was on holiday so she sent me a few extra stitch markers as well. And I will state that she did not have to do this. But I love stitch markers so I will never turn them down.

I also ordered some more tvyarns from Jana over at White Oak Studio. I had mentioned to her before that she really needed a yarn named after either Emergency, Rescue Me, Third Watch, Backdraft, or Ladder 49. Yes, there is a fire theme going on here. And well, she emailed me to ask me about what colors you see in fire. And I told her the colors that you see in the flames and I sent her several photos. And she created this wonderful yarn called Ladder 49. Yes, after the movie that was filmed in Baltimore and had what’s his name in it. You know John Travolta and Joaquin Phoenix.

And of course, I had have this yarn. And if you are ordering one color, why not order one or two more. So I did. I ordered Northern Exposure for myself and Sleepless in Seattle for P. But know that I have the Sleepless in Seattle in my hands, I am so tempted to keep it. The colors in it remind me of s’mores and toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate. But I will be good and send it to her. I will just have to order some for me.
