Amigurumi - little frog

Last weekend I took an Amigurumi class at a local yarn shop and turned out this little cutie frog.

Frogs and snails, as they say....are what little boys are made of.

Hopefully our little boy will like this stocking stuffer. The pattern calls for it to have a little scarf, so I guess I need to knit him up a little something to keep his neck warm.

What should we name this little guy? Any ideas?

The class itself was very cool. There were only 3 students and 1 teacher, and everybody was so helpful. The teacher taught me the proper way to read the patterns (whew! finally I know how)!

I also ran into this amazing woman who was a customer wandering around the yarn shop. She had her daughter and adorable grandbaby with her. It turned out she was Japanese and was so kind to translate a few more body parts in one of my amigurumi books for me.

Now I can make a hedgehog do to the kindness of this Japanese woman! How cool is that.

Cute frog! At my house he would simply be named froggie or Mr. Frog or some other derivitive of what he actually is. For want of relief, I would name him Saskatchewan or maybe Jiggles.
