...gone fishin'...








pattern: I found one on internet more than 3 years ago...but it's not there anymore!
ETA: It was called "Tesselating fish"!
yarn: Østlandsgarn, 50gr=100m, 100%wool, will felt if not treated gently!
colours:
-dark green 212, 6 balls, 14 fish
-light green 262, 6 balls, 14 fish
-petrol 234, 3 balls, 7 fish
-blue 225, 6 balls, 14 fish
-light blue 244, 6 balls, 14 fish
-red Falk, 2 balls, 5 fish
-orange Falk , 1 ball, 2 fish
Total of 70 fish, sewn together 7x10.
Size: 125cmX195cm/ 50"x78"
A very simple crochet shell edging.
needles: 3.5mm
Started 3 years ago...but rather quick to knit once I started! Less than an hour per fish. And finished now because I need the leftover yarn for mittens:-)
Right now it's lying out on the porch, I've washed it, and just stretched it a little.
Fun project;-)

Jeg har vært på fisketur...og resultatet ble et ulteppe på 125x195 cm! Jeg har prøvd å finne mønsteret igjen på nettet, men det er helt borte, jeg finner mange ferdige tepper, men ikke mønsteret. Begynte på dette for tre år siden, så ble det lagt på vent...men nå trengte jeg garnet til votter! Så da var det best å få det ferdig. Det var moro når jeg først fikk begynt! Nå ligger det til tørk ute på verandaen, det fikk en tur i vaskemaskinen igårkveld.
My view a few days ago. The rainbow is to remind me of my next project...I've been asked to sew a christeningdress for a lottery! I have all the fabrics, and a plan inside my head...;-)
Utsikten for noen dager siden. Fint å ha regnbuen for å minne meg om neste prosjekt...jeg er blitt spurt om å sy en dåpskjole til en utlodning! Har stoffene klare, og en plan tar form inni hodet mitt...;-)
Have a great day!
Ha en flott dag!

Look at all those fish! They're so cute all swimming along together like that! :0)

Fun project!

Dette var virkelig et flott og originalt teppe. Hvor mange masker legger du opp til en fisk? Kunne tenke meg å prøve, men du sier at mønsteret ikke er på nett lenger, så da spør jeg. Vennlig hilsen U9

I am assuming it is meant to be a blanket? What a unique and novel idea too. I love it! I can imagine that at some point it could be boring, so you would need a break now and then. But it also looks like a really fun project at the same time. It's gorgeous! :)

PJS said...

i absolutely love it!! what a triumph, bet you were pleased to see the whole thing assembled, would be a lovely thing to knit for kids.

What mittens are you going to knit now you have some leftovers?

Farmors said...

Så flink du har vært! Flott ble det! Jeg har noen fisker jeg også, kanskje blir det nok til en pute en eller annen gang.

Such a funny pattern Marit, And very colorful too. I like it :)

Rani said...

That is so cool! I love the colors you chose. The sparing reds scattered throughout has a really nice affect on the overall pattern.

Just a word: I thought I had a 'night off' but just discovered two more school meetings tonight. THEN, I plan to knit like a fiend. Maybe I'll bring my blanket and actually knit in public. Do I dare!? HA HA.

Så tøff du er som tør begi deg utpå med noe sånt. Det ble jo helt herlig også da. Teppe til å bli i godt humør av det der, men jeg syns det ser ut som en forferdelig masse arbeid. Men jeg har jo teppevegring.

Javisst har jeg ugler på pysjamasen - det er ugler på toppen også. (Ler) Jeg sitter i den akkurat nå og skal gå og legge meg så snart jeg har fått sagt "natta" til deg.

I love the way your afghan tessellates! Maybe my students would grasp the concept better if we could knit this as a class project!

As always, I love your landscape photo.

Hege said...

Herlig fisketeppe!!

Ninne said...

Sååå masse fisk du har fått! Kjempeflott teppe! Veldig synd du ikke fikk til å komme til Ørskogfjellet, det var veldig hyggelig og jeg savnet deg, men det kommer jo en ny anledning til neste år, så vi får satse på det!

Sylvia said...

Heisann. Så fint fisketeppet ditt blir, da! jeg hadde aldri hatt tålmodighet (sier jeg, som hekler på mitt 3 dje pledd.....kremt)

Fikk du med deg at jeg har byttet blogg? Nå husker jeg snart ikke hvem som har vært innom og ikke.......
Holder på å oppdatere link-lista mi, og det er MANGE!!!!

What a lovely unusual and fun project. I can see it also working well in various silvery grays a bit like a shoal of herring.

What a lovely one to snuggle up in now Autumn has arrived.

Michaela said...

Your scenery is breathtakingly beautiful - it is so very flat where we live. Oh that fishy blanket - quite wonderful, I'd love to have a go at one of those, especially as I have absolutely nothing else left to knit....

Moogsmum said...

Oh Marit, your fish blanket is fabulous!! I love it :)

Rebecca said...

I have always loved this fish blanket and forgotten about it. Yours is so nice! Maybe I should make fish with my scrap yarn when I am between projects and one day I can have a nice blanket too.

YarnThrower said...

Your fish blanket is totally amazing, and I can't even imagine weaving in all of those ends...but what a lovely finished product! Also, beautiful rainbow in your photo.
