Jellyfish Assembly Line

Just when I thought I was done with the jellyfish...

You remember the jellyfish, right?


I finished this guy in June. (The design is by a very talented crocheter who blogs at One Dog Woof. Via her Instagram feed, I see she's come up with a humpback whale pattern. The pattern for this jellyfish is here.) I made a couple others...


And last week I mentioned that I was making some more (custom order). I finally got them finished (and delivered!):


Although, I had a bit of an issue photographing them. They need to hang to be appreciated, and it's kind of hard to hold something up and take a picture of it. (And no, I'm not selfie-ing them.) As you can see from the pic above, I used a hanger and some clothespins.

I attempted to photograph them inside, but lighting...


Then, finally, I just laid them down on my favorite photographing rock...


I guess these pictures turned out OK. I get to try again later. I got an order for three more...

(And I'm continuing to take orders, so if you want one, let me know.)

  3. They are SO cute, and I'm betting the pictures don't do them justice, but I think they're fabulous either way.

  4. They look great on the rock! (Also, I love that you have a favorite photographing rock) I really love the different colors you use on some of their tendrils. It gives a nice contrast.

  5. Yes, they do need to be seen in all their glory. They're really flying off your shelves!

    1. They are. By people who have seen them in person.

    1. These are fairly quick. I could probably finish one in a day if I sat down and just worked on it. But a hat shouldn't take too long either... Well, sometimes other things are more important than crochet.

  7. Those are so cute. Makes me want to be able to crochet so I can make them. Bet I could make it work for knitting though...

    1. Personally, I think crochet is easier for shaped things. But yeah, there's probably a way to knit it.

  9. So cute. I love the colors. I can see why you’ve had so many orders. I peeked at the humpback whale pattern, too. Also adorable. Are you going to give that one a try as well?
