Fiber College, Frogs, & Feet

Fiber College, Searsport, Maine
I took a class at Fiber College last weekend on the coast of Maine. I had a great time. My class was taught by Mary Jane Mucklestone. The class was Colorful Andean Accents. Here's what I made. I am not (yet) a crocheting person, so my first attempt was rough - too tight to work with! After my second attempt, I had some time before dinner (excellent lasagna) so I sat in my car and tried again - I think I got it. Now I'd like to incorporate these techniques onto some of my mitten designs.

Frog Mittens
Here is my first pair of FROG MITTENS. I am working on this pattern for my Etsy Shop and Ravelry. This pair is for sale in my Etsy shop. The body of the frog was knit with Lamb's Pride: 'Limeade' - I can not get enough of this color. This is my kind of color!

And now, would you like to know what elementary school Art Teacher's feet look like after a day at school? On Friday I came home after a 10 hour day and looked at my feet. The school secretary put a positive spin on it, "At least they're school colors!" In fact our school colors are blue and yellow.
