Rainforest Frog

Each year, there is a TVaksjon in Norway.
From Wikipedia: TV-aksjonen is an annual national Norwegian fund raising event for various charity purposes which has been arranged since 1974. It is arranged by NRK in collaboration with a chosen organisation. The fund raising happens in several ways. It is mainly executed by approximately 100,000 volunteers knocking on people's houses with a certified collection box to all of Norway's 1.8 million houses and apartments. Besides this, donations are given by companies and persons directly to the fund raising through a telephone line or by transferring money directly to a certain bank account. NRK also hosts a live auction to the benefit of event. The fund raising also endures for some time after the official day as well. The organisation/purpose who will receive the money is decided by a fund raising committee at NRK.
This year all the money goes to the Rainforest Foundation Norway.
On their webshop I found a pattern for a very cute Frog by Arne&Carlos.
I got out my yarn and needles, and voila, a frog was born!

Quick and easy knit, but a bit advanced. I used 2,5mm needles, but maybe a bit to thin yarn.
When I make this again I'll choose a thicker yarn.

P3, one of the radio stations, are doing a live 100 hour broadcast from the square in Trondheim.
They've done it several times now, and it's a success. Maybe I'll ask them if they want to auction away the frog,
