Whenever I look at this little guy, I am reminded of a silly song I sang with my girls in Mommy-Baby swimming class: The Fishy Wishy (you do the Fishy Wishy and you turn yourself around, that's what its all about, Splash)...
But more to the point.....
I always like to have a portable project on the go, and for the last few weeks this colorful, happy fish was it. I am still working on my Garden Patch Granny Afghan, but with all the color changes, the blocking and the seaming, it is not portable at all. Smaller projects like a crochet fish (because who doesn't need one of those?) are just the right thing to take to a family BBQ, the park, or anywhere else where I may find a few spare moments to use my hook.
The pattern for Fishy is from Lion Brand (Amigurumi Angel Fish). I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Orange Chill and Purple Power.
I must warn you - I have huge balls of yarn in these colors so they will be popping up in projects many times in the future. I already used them in my Colorful Granny Square Bag, and my Orange Monster.
It has been a long time since I crocheted a toy and I really enjoyed working on this little fellow. I do love crocheting toys; they are quick to finish and so adorable. And they are the perfect portable project.
Do you like my little Fishy? Have you crocheted any toys lately?
Do you have a portable project that you are working on right now?
