This is just too cute. I collect frogs and have some in almost every room of the house. This will look great in my kitchen. Im not sure why it is shown pictured with a ducky like you would use in the bath because this would be much too harsh for a bath cloth in my opinion. Cant wait to make a couple of these.

What a silly frog! The kids will love this one.

This is an adorable pattern. My sister loves frogs and even though she is a "grownup" she would love this for use in her kitchen. It would also be good for a child. I find making scrubbies so easy and great to use. I always like to be knitting and this work up quickly. Thank you.

Every yarn company seems to gave a scrubby yarn now, but i haven't tried any if it yet since it seems sort of limited in its uses. But, this is really cute. I don't know that I would use it on my child, except for the bottom of their feet maybe, because I believe it would be to abrasive for their sensitive skin. But, it is cute enough to be left hanging in the bathroom or kitchen and would probably work well for scrubbing dishes or counter tops.
