The dead fish...

Finally finished! The eyes were added this morning with a little "fluff" under them to give them some pizazz. They look much better than just flat. I'm really liking the colors of the yarn and how it all mixed up with knitting 2 strands together. The other requests I've gotten from the rest of the gang here may have to be made the same way.

So with the fish done and no hiking to be done this weekend (we had rain and everything is yucky) I am retreating into my craft room (door shut) with the Ipod and headphones to get a grip on all the little things that are waiting patiently for me to complete. It's not bad but enough to not let it get out of hand any longer. Then there were be some debating on what project to start next. So many little ideas running around the head that I must stop and organize it all.

Well, off for fun in the craft room with all the tunes jamming. Who knows, maybe there will be a jig or two going on if a good song comes across the "pod".


  1. Wow! I've seen this pattern around, but I definitely like yours the best! Yes - the eyes are so much better "puffy"!

  2. Oh Kar, I am smiling all over at that cute hat. I'd love one for me even.

  3. I love the hat! One qs: Do your hands/wrists ever hurt from all this continuous knitting/crocheting?

  4. Oh, my, a day in the craft room! What fun! I love the fish hat. Your pattern? The colors are nice. Can't wait to see what comes out of closed doors. I'll be back soon. Liz
