Fishing for compliments?

Naw, he’s just teaching his tadpole son to swim, but he doesn’t seem to want to get into the water. I wonder why…

Don’t worry, my fish get plenty of food and would never think of eating a cute little amigurumi like you ^_~

I made this frog and his kid in anticipation of the birthday party of a friend of mine. She said she didn’t want any presents, but who can really resist any kind of excuse to pick up their crochet hook? After a succesfull birthday party for my boyfriend, I was able to start and finish two projects already this week! Now I need to get to work on a gift for another friend who has given birth to a wonderful baby girl (the day before?) yesterday.

But I think I will give my hands some rest until the weekend. My wrist has been doing better, even though I’m afraid I strained it too much again at work yesterday. I should really learn to take it easy when my body starts to ache ^_^”

The pattern for ‘Kobe the Frog’ and his tadpole son ‘Kenji’ come from the book Amigurumi & Forest Friends by Tessa van Riet-Ernst. As far as I know, it’s only available in Dutch.

He's pulled him back up into safety, just in case!
