Sweet-ish Fish ~ a quick pattern for your mini-skeins or leftover sock yarn!

Hi, Knitters,
I am back safe and sound from Denver and from filming a brand new Craftsy class. I'll be talking a lot more about it very soon. The class will be available by the end of March, so that turn around is super fast. I had a blast and everything went really well. Craftsy is one impressive operation. The people who work there are incredibly talented, kind, energetic and creative. It is an inspiring work environment. More soon!

I have a new little pattern for you today and it at a low introductory price of $2.00 starting March 6, 2016 through March 13, 2016. After March 13, 2016 the price will be set at $3.00. There is no coupon code necessary.

Here is some information you might like to know:

Sweet-ish Fish is the perfect fingering weight mini-skein or leftover sock yarn project using only 3 grams of sock yarn. The project is worked seamlessly from the nose to the tail and can be whipped up in no time at all. Sweet-ish Fish makes a lovely little ornament or gift-topper or toy!

Finished measurements: 2½ inches in length; almost 1½ inches in height

Yarn: 3 grams of fingering weight or sock weight yarn

Needles:  US size 1/2.25mm needles, either double-pointed needles or one long circular needle for Magic Loop OR size to obtain gauge

Note: The pattern is written for double-pointed needles but can be easily adapted for Magic Loop.

This is a super fun and fast project. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for the support, as always, and I hope you enjoy working up your Sweet-ish Fish!
