Quick and silver through the pool

You may have noticed that I don't knit very much in the summer.

I suspect the reasons for this are obvious -- other hobbies, of course, and the fact that in 90-degree heat a lapful of wool is unappealing.

But sometimes it's good to bust out the double-pointed needles and knit something, even in summer. I made this tiny frog for my sister's birthday present. All the pieces are sewn together and a pin finding attached so Tiny Birthday Frog can be worn as a pin.
