Converted all Blogs over

And it was NOT easy. Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come.

Mason Dixon Kimono

I finally finished the Mason-Dixon Kimono. Not extirely pleased with the results, but happy enough that with my notes I will do another with modifications. The sleeves ended up very narrow once seamed and the back neck curled. Next time I will add more width to the sleeves and 5 rows of garter stitch to the back to finish off the neck edging. I will also double the increases to ensure I have enough front to add buttons. Here ya go...

Finished kimono. Underneath is a striped oufit in "newborn size" that has a stripe of green that matches the yarn perfectly.

Close up of stiches and yarn. Yarn is a pretty green in TLC cotton/acrylic in a color called Kiwi.

Apllied i-cord to create a square knot tie. Inside are two longer (but less bulky) chain crochet ties.

P.S. True color is somewhere in between the pictures. Brighter than the pic above, but not quite as limey as the first two.

Poor Little Froggy

So G comes home from school talking about the dead frog he found and how he now wants to be a doctor (rather than a pirate) to help save frogs. I thought nothing of it until he came up to me and *shared* the little dead frog. I love frogs but somehow they loose a bit of their appeal being dead.

Hmmm, where to start? I suppose something simple, short, and to the point. Frog Yarns will be my place to post "yarns" about the kiddos and about some of my yarn projects. Welcome.
