How many handknits does it take to catch a fish?



Well, let's see:

Malabrigo felted hat
koigu fingerless
malabrigo cowl
(under jacket) Alpaca zip vest.

4 handknits. One Nice Northern Pike, and one (not shown) 17 inch large mouth bass.

No Knitters were harmed in the days activities.

Do you love the great outdoors? Do you knit in the great outdoors?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

Love the fish! What a catch!

I love the great outdoors. I love to knit, and I love to view the great outdoors while knitting--say, from my deck, with a glass of wine...

Knit and fall back in it said...

That's about 2 handknit items per fish, not a bad average.

Ha! Too funny.

Y'know, at first I thought a that fish was knitted too! Lovely pattern!

Bernadette said...

That is one great catch! Did you knit the fish net too??? ;) Great knit accessories... I am going to have to make a cowl - it looks so cozy!

I think yoel may have something... "patterns from nature"! :)

Love the photo!!! Looks like a fun day! What's not to love about it----great way to show off your beautiful knits and your prize catch as well!!!!!

Deb said...

Did you keep it or throw it back?

Kathy said...

Deb

Catch and release of course! I got to put them both back in the water and see them swim happily off.

Sue said...

Awesome post, Kathy. You make me smile. :-)

Karen said...

Yikes!! DO NOT let that slimy smelly fish touch the Malabrigo or Koigu!! :)

Lynne said...

Is that a knitted fish?????

Kathy said...

No, it is not a knitted fishy. It is a real fishy. With real teeth. I had to hold him by his gills. Ewwww. But I did it.

Emily said...

Excellent! Did you knit in the boat or just wear knits in the boat? I always take a sock to work on when we go out in the canoe. Superwash. Just in case.

Great photo! That fish is amazing also ... and would make a great pattern. Socks maybe?

You are lucky to have the great outdoors... here the little green left are turned into houses, houses and more houses. (ugh!) I'm longing for a walk in the forest...:-)

AND you have proof of that big fish!
