FO: My test Frank
So I got the book KnitWit recently and decided to try making my first toy yesterday. It was fast (I actually finished this in less than 2 days) but it was not easy for me. Not sure why it says for beginners because it doesn't thoroughly explain some steps and I had to improvise and it definitely shows. I also am just learning how to do basic hand sewing so some of the limbs are attached a little messy and lumpy. My test Frank is still adorable though and I am just delighted to have him with us. Also, I used really junky yarn just to test this out with. I will definitely make another Frank and others with much better yarn after I practice some more.

:D He's adorable!! I hate attaching limbs too. I do usually get a little better with practice but it's not something I enjoy.

Is he blue from lack of oxygen? He doesn't seem to have a nose.

Actually, he's very cute, my DGD would love him. I think KnitWits are hard to work with, so you did great.
