Meet Sus.
Gradually, over the next few months, I'm going to experiment. I've been wanting to draw more, and have been working on some cards. Sus is a knitter, a commuter and a dreamer. I hope to make some adventures for her and I hope they're enjoyable.

Knitted fish...

First, it's been a long time. Here is a tulip from my window box, which is finally weedfree, to make you feel springlike.

I knitted some fish for Samuel, the penguin who lives with Foggyknitter from BB. For those who want, here is the pattern - I have yet to add it to Rav, but can if people feel the need.

What else would a knitted or crochet penguin eat - a knitted fish!

Use any yarn of your choice and a needle a good few sizes below the recommended size. This is Artesano Alpaca DK on 2.5mm needles.
