Thanks Bekah!

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things: of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—of cabbages—and kings—and why the sea is boiling hot—and whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried, "before we have our chat; for some of us are out of breath, and all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

you should do custom orders sometime! people would probably love a amigurumi version of their fishies. are you going to try coming up with patterns for different tails?

I do take custom orders! I will work out different tail types if enough people express interest in a certain tail type. I have to make a couple fish to work through the pattern and I don't want to just have mountains of experiment fish no one intends to purchase laying around. I'd drown in fish XD

I have storage tubs full of yarn, trying to knit & crochet only from my stash right now.

Finally finished this scarf. I realized when I was finished that I had been leaving out the last two rows of every repeat. D'oh!!! Looks okay though.

Still looks awesome!
Leenix, what size needles do you use typically for your lace work?? I might try it. C:
You use fingering/ lace weight right?

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

Ah cool! I've never tried lace work before. I might try making a table runner. :P
