The body yarn was dyed with Easter egg dye in pink, orange and yellow, (and half a bottle of yellow food coloring. ) The traffic-cone orange is scrap from my stash. I ran short, so couldn't do the dorsal and pectoral fins all orange as I wanted to, so had to eke it out with some tan from the stash. I have enough of the body color to do another fish and think I probably will go for it. Since I'm out of orange, what color for contrast do you think? Black for lips and tail and body color for the fins?
I'm almost finished with the rainbow trout. It's taking me about 8 hrs to knit one hat.
DH is coming up with ideas for more hats. I have some mottled gray that I may use for a stingray. And how about a sea anemone? Lots of I-cord tentacles.
I found the wicker head by the way. You know how, when you have something in the same place day after day and you just quit noticing that it's there? Yep. It was on top of the bookshelf next to my bed. Duh.
