Fishin and Stitichin

 Our favorite Vet, Captain Larry took us fishing yesterday.
Fireman and I both love to fish. 
Fireman and Larry were pulling in walleye.
I wanted to bobber fish. 
I know what you may be thinking…
Geez she's a lazy knitter and a lazy fisher! 
All that casting and reeling is okay, but I can't SEE what's happening under the water when I jig so why do it? 
I much prefer to use a bobber and get all excited when it goes under.  
I knitted on the current Trap on the way up and back to Lake Geneva.  I'll finish it today. 
As you can see it was a cloudy cool day but it was perfect for fishing.
And the fish were biting, literally.  Fireman got bit by a walleye and it was a bleeder.  Have you ever gotten bit by a fish?
 Fishing for a summer project? 
This little dress is Adorable. 
I found it at 3 Bags Full studio on the wall. 
Looks like a lot of shaping to me, but it also looks doable. 
Fish tales anyone?

No fish tales or tails here.

Love the little dress - an adorable knit.

Sounds like a successful day of fishing...and oh do I love to eat walleye. My dad used to catch them and fry up the filets.Oooh..yum.

At first I did not realize the dress was knitted. Oh my goodness, that's really cute!

Owwweee ---- hope Troy is okay.

Yes ...I've been bitten. I got bit in high school by a dead shark.

We were dissecting sharks and I was holding the mouth open so we could count the rows of teeth. My hand slid off the top jaw and it clamped shut on my hand.

So, now I can honestly say I have been hit by lightning AND bitten by a shark. Maybe I should play the lottery.

My Dad loved to fish and he believed catfish tasted better if kept alive until it was time to prepare for eating. There were many times I would find a live catfish swimming in the bathtub which is why I always shower and NEVER use the bathtub. Even now! I do, however, love to eat catfish!!

Lucky you, Lake Geneva, one of our favorite places! Are you going to knit that dress?

What a cute dress!

I hate to fish. I used to be a bobber girl, but then in the course of three casts, I had a run-in with a catfish that cut my hand, an eel that bit my cousin, and a water moccasin. The end of me and fishin', and any time I need to run harder, I remember running from that snake.

My mother loved to fish. We always had a freezer full of bay blue fish and flounder when I was growing up. She also was a crabber and all summer long we had a kiddie pool full of the mean little things in the middle of the kitchen floor as they must be kept alive until cooking time. I don't eat crabs anymore but I still put Old Bay seasoning on everything.
