My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Goldfish Wanda

You’ve friended her on Facebook, you follow her on Twitter or Plurk . . .

Now you can knit and felt your very own Goldfish Wanda!

Knit from Cascade 220, Wanda takes less than 50 yards for the main color and less than 20 yards for the contrast color.

She is easy to knit and fun to felt. The pattern is available for sale on Ravelry and costs only $1.50. And half of the proceeds from the sale of the pattern will be donated to animal charities.

You can get your Goldfish Wanda pattern here on Ravelry. Pattern details are on this page.

Lucy and I had a wonderful weekend with Leslie and Laura, who are delightful houseguests. Lucy is eyeing me suspiciously since I got home, wondering what I did with her two new frends.

“Are they in here?”

Tomorrow: pix of my finished Shetland Pi!

    Yay! I think I’ll mod the upper fin to a betta fish…and make a “F’ish” for my son. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Love Goldfish Wanda! Good seeing you today at Fiber Space. Can’t wait to see the finished Shetland Pi shawl.

  3. It looks to me like Lucy’s looking for her own Goldfish Wanda. Surely you made her one (or two)… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Er, no offence, but the goldfish in profile looks more like a shark…but a very cute little shark!

    Wendy—I have not tried toe-up socks yet, but you’ve been enticing (sp???) me.
    Please put me in your drawing. Judy
