None of you hazarded a guess about my newest project, but rather than torment you all further with more obscure clues, I thought I’d just show you. You know, since it’s finished and all…
That’s right: it’s Fish Hat by Thelma Egberts, the very same pattern featured in the winter 2008 edition of Knitty.
Here’s a better shot of the face. (Yes, it’s folded in half, so you also get a better look at the tail. It’s a two-fer!)
The most obvious modification I made is to the eyes. I decided against the dead fish eyes that you see in the original and went with big googly-eyes instead. I think it’s whimsical and totally adorbs!
It’s past my bedtime, so I’ll write up the project notes tonight and post them on a FO 2013 tab.
Have a terrific Saturday, kittens!
