Frosty the Snowman

The first holiday gift is finished. This little dude is from Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special. I love him. I also love that I didn't buy a scrap of yarn to make him. He's made of leftover Plymouth Encore and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. Knit on size 2 needles, in the round where possible.

I cannot wrap my mind around why, for the love of all things knitted, this was designed to be knit flat. Every.little.stinking.piece. As is every project in this book. Oh, joy.

Anyway, I believe Frosty will going to live with my husband's grandma. One down, and much more knitting to go.

He is so cute! I'm thinking of making her Rainbow Babies for some of the kids on my list.

He is cute beyond belief. I want one.

I can not believe all the pieces were meant to be knit flat. It would take longer to seam the little guy than it took to knit him. What do people have against knitting in the round?
