Frogged And Overweight


What a ridiculous title for a blog post. This is not about me getting older, eating too much chocolate or not being able to knit.

Well, for knitters the word frogged is well known. For others this means that you give up on a knitting project for different reasons.

Bottled up for gifts or for me...
But this is about frogs. The silver ones made into stitch markers with a rather large belly.

What fun it is to make these and to add some color to them. I made 14 in bright neon colors and 10 in fake pearls.

I had to order more frogs. These are excellent gifts.

I found some great vials to put them in as wel. I love the fact that I can see through and that they make nice gift wraps. You always know where they are.

It is a nice thing that I already have all the tools needed for making them.

I had all the wires, crimps, beads and the pliers. Not to mention eBay for ordering more beads, frogs and what is fun to put on a stitch marker.

There may be a conciderable amount of them. But right now, I enjoy making them. What else is there in life? Oh, chocolate of course... LOL!!

Made me realise - if life gives you lemons you make stitch markers...

When life gives you lemons 
throw it back and ask for chocolate

The rainbow frog gang all together.
