Thank you again for the generous encouragement!

Sunnychoppers: Yes, I'm glad the video recorded the catch, which makes the fish tale easier to tell!

Sovietweed: Yes, the orange yarn from AslanTrends varies wildly in thickness, which was tricky to work with at first but eventually fun.  Thanks to your question, I'm spending the evening learning and practicing bobble stitches!

This is really fantastic - I also agree that the yarn really makes the project, and gives the body a wonderful, scaly look. You also get an A+ for presentation, of course!

I'll have to pick some up, it looks soft and fluffy {: That's awesome that you've learned the bobble stitch, I also recommend the popcorn stitch, if you find you like making bobbles...http://www.crochetmemories.com/crochet4.php<-- Helpful stitch chart that has both stitches explained on it.

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

I love how you used a stitch marker as the fish hook!

BentoBox: you're the first person to point out the stitch marker hook, hehe.  If I had used a real fish hook, it would have been a grisly photo shoot. Smiley

Sovietweed: Thanks again for the link to the stitching chart at http://www.crochetmemories.com/crochet4.php
I've been using it to discover new stitches!
