I made a birthday deep sea angler fish.

It was a fun little knit...lots of short rows! I finally have the courage to consider adding short rows to a larger project, like a sweater!
I used Lion Brand Woolease and size 6 US needles.
Check it out on my blog:

Hve you heard Hank Green's song about the deep sea angler fish? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t7E4amWDqI

I love this!  I've been trying to get my hands on a poster from my city's yearly chili cook-off that features an angler fish for years.

This looks like one of those cat beds...

Like, if it were hollow, the cat could crawl into it and then have a sweet dangly toy to play with.

I guess I'm trying to say that it's awesome.

That's awesome!

When I was a kid, we had these Time/Life books and there was a picture of an angler fish on one of the pages. I remember I used to look at that book, fascinated.

Super cute!  Love the blue/gray color combo!  Your angler has a nice personality -- or at least by all appearances!  Wonderful work!
