While I was photographing my Goldfish sweater today, the Jaws theme song popped into my head. I’ve only just got the top edge of my fish actually knitted, and I found myself imagining that if they had dorsal fins, they’d be ominously slicing through the water, ready to devour a hapless swimmer. Luckily, these are cute and cuddly goldfish, sans dorsal fins. You can just see their backs/heads and a tiny tip of each tail. It may not look like much yet, but I’m so excited!
There’s something very magical about watching a pattern develop. Whether it’s colorwork or a textured stitch pattern, or even just the basic shape of a project, I love watching something emerge from repetitive motions of yarn and sticks. It’s one thing to see it on a chart, but it’s an entirely different kettle of fish (haha) to see the chart translated into actual fabric. Now we just have to hope that my floats aren’t too tight. Cross your fingers!
