I started this project back in August. I was hoping to finish Christmas presents early, but it didn’t happen. I got the bodies finished quickly; it was just the rest of it that took a long time. I was working on these during the day, because the girls couldn’t figure out what I was doing, then I had to switch to night time crochet and that wasn’t so easy, since I wanted to sleep instead of crochet. 😀 I also had to make several of the fins and eyeballs, for each fish, because the dogs ate them or I lost them.
Once I had to wash the whole set; yarn, body, eyeballs, fins, everything. I was happily crocheting along. The whole bag of goodies were on the floor at an easy reach. I needed that because of changing the colors a lot. Anyhoo, I reached over to the table to get something, probably the needle, and I hit my glass of beer. Yep, the whole glass of beer landed upside down in the bag. These fishy things are now known as Beer Fish. FYI, no I wasn’t drunk, but the fish ended up being a little wobbly.
The pattern is Fish Bag by Margorie Crochets
I used Red Heart Yarn in black, white, red, green, and orange.
They are now in a box that is three boxes taped together.
And they are under the tree. WooHoo!!
Now on to the rest of my Christmas crocheting frenzie.
