Four More Jellyfish

Last week I promised finished jellyfish. This week, I have finished jellyfish...


I did, in fact, have them finished by last Monday.


That's when I took these pictures. I even used this one to replace my header photo on a couple of my social media pages...


They were mailed on Thursday, and according to the online tracker, they arrived on Saturday. Hopefully the nephews are enjoying them.

Now, it's back to infinity scarves. I started one on Tuesday. It took me over an hour to cast on. I worked on it for the next couple days. On Saturday night, I ripped it all out.

The stitches were too loose. I decided to go with a smaller needle. And once I'd pulled it off the needles, I saw that it was waaaay too big. So, good call, that. (No one needs an infinity scarf that's 70 inches around.)

I'll post pictures when I have some progress to report.

  2. Those jellyfish are so cute! I'm sure your nephews will like them! I do admire you for ripping out your projects when you realize they aren't how you want them to be and then continuing on with them; I might be one that would give up and move on to something else. Is the latest fire in Orange County close to you?

    1. I get tempted to keep going, but I know I'll be happier with it if I do it right. Even if that means ripping it out.

      The fire is south Orange County. That's a good distance from me. (I'm in LA County.)

  4. It's one thing to finish a project and another to photograph and writer about it on the blog. Glad you were able to meet your goal.

    I feel like you should have a summer knitting project. Scarves sound hot. But then again, if you don't finish scarves in the summer, will they really be done in time for fall and winter? You are a fast knitter, but I think the answer would be no for me.

    1. It's a very lightweight scarf. But yeah, I need more crochet projects for the summer. They're easier as my hands sweat pretty badly.

    1. Considering how long the last one took, it'll probably be a while.

  9. Wow - I had to get myself up to speed on your jellyfish making. Luckily your blog points me to the past posts, I love these and the great colours! I'm sure your day job doesn't often allow you to also work on other things, but isn't it great when the stars (or should I say sea) aligns so you can make jellyfish?!

    1. Yeah, it's nice when I have time during the day job. It's rare, but it happens.

  11. Those jelly fish are cute! They almost look like they could be wind chimes if they had bells on their tentacles.

  12. Jellyfish! I adore these. Best wishes on the scarf.

  13. The jellyfish are absolutely adorable and undoubtedly will be big hits. I love Sherry's idea about windchimes. It was probably wise to undo the scarf - 70 inches sounds like it actually is approaching infinity.
