Help with these fish
I'm making the fish aphgan for my grandson Sam (he's three) and a great judge of fish. His fav movie is Finding Nemo. I have about 35 fish made, and would like to start putting them together, my prob. is that I'm not sure the best and (neatest )way to do this. All my fish are diff. colors, from scrap yarn. So if you have any idea's lady's and gent's, I am all eyes. Thanks.... Karen... P.S I have finished two candle flame shawls, when my camera comes home (daughters house) I can't wait to show you. Thanks again

TWO candle flame shawls!?!?!?! I been working on one and it's taking forever. I love it though. I'm using my Manos.

Now the fish I would assume you just line up the tail with the heads so they "fit" like a puzzle piece and then just sew em up. I don't think it matters what color you use to sew with. The more colors the merrier on a project like this. I haven't made the fish yet so I'm not sure. I been wanting to make the fish but ya know I got the candle flame shawl, baby blankets, etc....

Yeah mama I got the puzzle part down (that's the fun part) And when I knit my fish up, I left a long tail at the CO and the COF . I think I'm just to fussy when I'm putting them together. I hate when I see one color stiched into another........Don't ya love that candle flame shawl patt. Yeah I got two done. One in cotten, and one in DW wool. I hope to show ya soon. .....Oh and why did ya give up on the clogs? I was thinking of making them when I can find the patt. And Spooky !! Good luck with your fish :sunny: Karen

I wish I could take credit for it, but it's not my work. :crying:

I got that fish afghan picture from the pattern that was originally posted on the internet. I don't know the name of the person who made that afghan.

The original pattern link quit working, and now all we have is the link I posted yesterday.

(I made a copy of the original pattern and saved it to my computer.)
