Hey thanks everybody for you kind comments.  Grin
I really appreciate it.

For those who asked about a pattern I will try to write it down. If I get it finished I will add it to this post.

BTW: I am not the mermaid. The beautiful model is a friend of mine.

Thanks again!

Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce you to the fabulous Aqua Maureen!
This mermaid made her debut last Wednesday night at Dr. Sketchy's Tokyo.



Her tail was knit from many different yarns and I used Nikol Lohr's Siren pattern from her book "Naughty Needles".



The seaweed top was my own pattern and knit with a bamboo cotton blend.


AFTER her encounter with a devious pirate aboard his ship Aqua Maureen was transformed...



All of the pieces in this picture are my own patterns. I knit the starfish bikini using a silk/acrylic/nylon blend and some cotton yarn for the straps. The silver part of the fishy bottom is silk and the blue/green part is a cotton/acrylic blend. The bronze fish net was knit with a nylon ribbon yarn.





This whole project took about 3 months to complete.
Thanks for looking and thank you for any comments!

That's a really great pattern. I have some katia jamaica with yellow and green tones in it and I think that might be a perfect shape for it. Thanks for posting!

I don't remember how long the pattern took because  I did it during lunch breaks and stuff. Yeah there were several errors in the pattern. I wasn't sure if it was a mistake or it was me but since you are having the same problems...

I think it looks more like a bunch of tubes. I can't tell if they are empty or have some kind of piping in them but I think it would be easy to make just time consuming. I thing you could try to make a bunch of long tubes, turn them, and then draw some cord (you can probably find some in the upholstery section) through them. When you have enough tubes lay them flat and weave a tube through them to hold them. Or stitch across them.

I hope that helps Smiley

Those clogs look really comfy! I also like your sock yarn.

If you are having trouble binding off you can try the elastic bind off. I found this in the book Domiknitrix. Knit one, pass it back to the left needle. Knit 2 together and pass back to the left needle. Repeat  until all the stitches are bound off.

I think painting on is a good idea too.
Also I thought you could bead in one area by either enhancing the design that is already there or create a different motif on the top using beads, paint, applique, et cetera...

This is the first piece of lace that I have knit. I found the lace pattern at http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/index.html It was just a test but when my friend's birthday rolled around I decided to whip it up into a pillow. The fabric are some kimono scraps that I picked up at the local craft store.





Thanks for looking!
