Fish & Scrappy Scarf

12 fish for this week. My goal for this year is one per day and I now have 15 fish. So on some days I have time to make one or more and some days I don't finish even one. The hope is that by the end of the year I will have enough fish to make a complete blanket. I haven't quite figured out how many I will need......That might be a truly scary number!! And then of course they will need to be attached together in some form or fashion. It's very exciting to be using up all these bits and pieces of cotton that are left over from dishcloths and other projects and have been sitting in a bag for a very long time. Some of the balls were very small and needed to be combined with other colors -kind of fun! They are so quick that they have become very addictive and each time I finish one, it feels great! Then I leave them in a little stack on the corner of my kitchen counter as inspiration to keep going and at the end of the week take a picture. It's been working so far!
I also worked briefly on this scrappy scarf that was started some time ago, but quickly decided that it took away too much time from the fish :o) After the fish blanket is complete this will be what the scraps of cotton go to. There are so many other exciting things that I am working on that I can't wait to share them, but right now there are many hungry mouths awaiting waffles!!

Knitting fish IS VERY addictive and fun, plus uses up all your scraps. Can't wait to see your finished blanket :)
