Peek-a-Boo

I've got mermaid tails on the brain. I have no idea if I'll get around to knitting one, but I have a plan all mapped out. It involves the stitch pattern that's currently the background on the blog. I'll keep you updated...

The mask. It's almost done...


It needs to be blocked, starched, and the ribbons to keep it on need to be attached. Looking at the picture, I realize the eyes are too far apart. I could not tell this by trying it on. I can see just fine through it.

Ah well. My curiosity is sated. Although, I kind of want to make one in orange...

  1. It would be perfect for Halloween. My daughter keeps telling me she wants a mermaid tail, but she's almost at that age where she's out grown those kinds of things, so I hesitate.

  2. I do like the mask. In orange would be cute. I have seen those mermaid tails around. They are cute! In a colder climate I probably would buy one in a heartbeat.

  10. Now you just have to create a hundred thousand more and you've got a business for Halloween. Maybe not. But I'm all into thinking big these days. Great job on the mask.

  14. I really love the mermaid tails that so many people are making. I want to find a sparkly iridescent yarn to use in one. Good luck.

    1. You might have to pair a sparkly yarn with something more workhorse. I'm not sure if they make bulky sparkly yarns. And making one of these with a thinner yarn could take For. Ev. Er.
