Let's hear it for the cat ~..~
I started making fishies in January and have been collecting them in a paperbag. I just couldn't get into it. I thought to myself that I would make 3 kitty blankets for the family cats for Christmas. Finally over the weekend I was tired of the fishies sitting in my closet. I counted my fish up and decided that I would need 20 fish to do a blanket. Well, I had 40 in the bag. So, after 3 days of only knitting fish (and dang I got tired of them lol) I had enough to do my 3 blankets. My son and I sat down Tuesday morning and put 1 blanket of fishies in order. After a whole day of sewing (which I like to get out of lol) I have one finished blanket !!! Woohoo!

My kitty Felix seems to be enjoying the 1st blanket. Guess I am going to have to break down sometime and make him one too lol.

Oh how fun!! I bet that WAS a pain to seam. Even still, I think I know a cat or two who neeeeeeeeeeds one of those. Where did you get the pattern for the fishies? It'd be so good to use up leftovers!

Well, I can't seem to find the original pattern on the internet. If you search for fish afghan I am sure you can find it. This pattern is very similar to the one i used.

I used a bunch of scrap yarn and size 10.5 US needles.
