A different kind of frog...

Happy February!  My apologies again for the lack of recent posts.  It's been another crazy month here in our household, complete with pre-school visits as Sammy is starting pre-school this week.  My husband and I also had a great semi-vacation in San Diego.  I have a few pictures from that adventure that I just have to share, since they may serve as my next pattern inspiration.  

This is a great shot of the harbor seals in San Diego that my husband took.  I can not tell you how amazing it was to be able to get this close to wild seals.  I think that this picture shows how excited I was!

They were just so fun to watch and so cute that it made me want to knit one.  I did some checking around on Ravelry and just couldn't find anything quite right.  Perhaps it's time for another pattern.

The only other knitting I have to report is that I did finally dive into the Oversized Toddler Sweater for Sammy.  Unfortunately it led to my first true project frogging.  The pattern is straight forward enough but I just didn't like the end result, especially when I got to the sleeve decreases.  
They just looked odd and the whole thing end up being stiff and bulky and I just didn't think I had the heart to torture Sammy into wearing it!  And keep in mind I make him wear a sheep cardigan!  I did love using the Spud and Chloe Outer so I'll have to dig up another project to use it for....any suggestions?  In the meantime, I'm moving on to my first sock project.  More on that soon...
