I discovered Spud & Chloe through Susan B. Anderson’s newsletter. Anderson designs patterns for the new yarn line Spud & Chloe. Check it out the free patterns (Ribbit is one!) here.

This little cutie is called Ribbit, a knitted frog pattern that opts to use a tennis ball instead of stuffing! I’m going to start on this tonight and make it for grandson Asher. He is almost 6 months old now and will probably get a giggle or two out of a bouncing frog!

I found the bamboo needles on eBay, a full set in all sizes for $12. I’m “okay” with them, but would like to have some nicer ones some day.

This yarn is just dreamy. My friend Heather ordered mine with hers and it came in time for our knit group meeting last Saturday. What fun it was to see her after several weeks of summer travel, complete with Ribbit’s yarn!

So I’m off to my recliner to try and get over a bug I’ve been fighting, and all the while working on a little frog friend. I’ll let you know how it goes!

This is a new item my friend Angela shared with me. Check out the website here!

I went to the site and found a store in Georgia that I could order from. I ordered mine from The Whole Nine Yarns in Woodstock.

When it came, it looked like a gift! I love that! Wrapped in cute paper, I could have thought, “hey, this is a surprise!” But I paid for it, so I knew… still, it was fun to open!

Here’s their card:

Here’s the kit AND a thank you note!
Here’s what it does:

It has a tape measure that comes out looking like a fish with a tongue!

A crochet needle for those dropped stitches tucked into the side:

A counter on top… push a button to count stitches, then turn a dial to reset!

Open the back for folded scissors, point covers and stitch markers! All PINK! Yippee!

This is a neat kit, now I’m going to actually use it. I think it was a bit pricey but it might prove otherwise… will post on that later. The Whole Nine Yarns, however, gets my vote for best service, ever!
