Well technically a turquoise fish if you believe the yarn label. It's sitting on top of the un-blocked pile of completed fish. I keep breaking this big project down into sections so I can feel like I'm making some headway. It has a total of 11 rows with 5 fish each. I've completed and joined... Continue Reading →
I know I'm still a long way from being finished making fish, but I still wanted to start making some progress on joining them together. I'm glad I did this today, because now I know what stitch I want to use and how long it takes to join one row. This is the first project... Continue Reading →
Did a few more rows of knitting. It feels like it is going very slowly but at least I think I am getting the hang of it!
I thought that maybe the positive, confident mood I was in after yesterday's amigurumi success might help me get over whatever mental blocks I still have about knitting. So far it looks like I was right. I looked up some new videos and tutorials and gave knitting another try today, and it went much more... Continue Reading →

I got hit by a kind of compulsion to start making this amigurumi and I decided to just go with it. I suppose it is a sign that I need to remember to take lots of breaks from the fish blanket so I don't burn out.
Didn't make much fish progress tonight. I'm still ahead of schedule for getting this blanket done before the July 1 deadline so I'm not concerned.
I'm more than half way finished! Only 22 left to make, not including any I have to do over because of size differences...
Unfortunately it looks like all of my turquoise fish are way too big compared to the others. I don't really want to have to re-make those but I suspect I will need to. At least once this batch dries I will have enough fish of the right colors to start joining a couple rows together... Continue Reading →
I'm still adding to the pile of fish. Today I finished off the last red fish I need. Just several shades of blue and green left to go.
I had to experiment a little bit with tension and hook size since I'm using so many different yarns for this project. I decided to block some of the ones I have finished so I know if I need to change things moving forward. So far it looks like there may be one or two... Continue Reading →
