Finished the Dead Alive Fish Hat over the weekend. It is a bit big for the boyer but he looks cute in it and he will grow.
I used some yarn I've had in the stash for a while. The main yarn is black with some yellow, green, red, blue and purple dashes of color - I guess you would call it a print rather than a variagated. It was really alot of fun to knit. I used the Fibonacchi striping to determine the number of rows for each color. I was very pleased with how the stripes turned out and doing the stripes that way made the plain knitting much more interesting. I used a size 5 needle and the yarn is a worsted weight.
Directions for the tail are found under FAQ in the designer's website. The ones on Knitty are different.
There are so many different kinds of people in this world. Some are born to be athletes, others are born to be musicians. Lots of people play baseball or football. But few are born to be true athletes. Many people listen to music, sing in a choir, or play in a high school band. But few are born to be musicians. There are lots of knitters out there today. But few are born to knit!
