Jellyfish No. 23

Last week was a low and slow week for me. I had hoped to finish writing up the pattern for the keychains I've been working on. I've got most of it done, but not enough to be able to post it this week.

So, instead I'm posting a picture of the latest jellyfish. I finished this guy about two (three?) weeks ago. And I just spent the better part of 20 minutes verifying that he is #23. Sigh.


(Link to the pattern.)

Note to self: perhaps one should number the jellyfish inventory to help with this count in the future.

The colors on this one are for a very specific purpose. I had a request for one for the newly born granddaughter of the lady from the farmers market. She wanted it to match the colors of the baby's bedroom. But we had a pink/coral problem. I posited this color combo. She didn't think it sounded like a good idea. So, I made the color combination she requested. But then I had to make this one just to prove it would also work. And here it is.

I had the colors in yarn already. Why not?

I wish you a good week.

  2. These jelly fishes always boost things at least 10% for me, so cute and colourful.
    A good week to you as well.

  8. You don't have a picture of the color combination the lady requested? Did you show the lady that this color combo worked? (just curious.)

    1. I did not take a picture of the one I made for her. Or the one I made for someone else in the same color combination. I meant to, but I ended up delivering the item before I had a chance to take pictures. Stupid of me.

      I only just finished this color combo. I also posted it on FB. She "liked" it there, so I can safely say she's seen it.

    1. Thanks, but I can't take credit for the pattern. Only the color combo.

    1. Kind of. Although, if I got another commission, I'd start another without a second thought. I haven't made one in a while, though.
