for all the great feedback on my fishies! it’s so much fun to knit and blog when people like what you’re doing – and let you know🙂 – just keep the comments coming! i’m getting better at leaving traces from my blogrounds myself, especially since i’m realizing how motivating it is.
and THANK YOU – gurin – for giving me the title
if you push the button it takes you back to gurins’s blog, gurin likes vintage farbrics and making bags.
and now i would like to appoint dalinda a rockin’ girl blogger! i like the colours and naive style of the stuff she’s making and the simplistic design of her blog🙂. go check it out.
back to the fish – i’ve knit about 32 fish, but i’m not putting too much effort in these days (1 fish forward and 1/2 fish back….), so i should speed up once i get going again. but look at what i got from digisnail over at eBay:
a digital pocket scale!
5 fish weigh 22 grams. which means that 1 fish weighs 5,5 grams and that i almost get 10 fish from one skein of safran from garnstudio.
i can weigh my knits and keep better track of my yarn. i think it cost about $5 (buy-it-now price), but about $20 in total including postage. which wasn’t so bad. i might also get other uses out of it. it goes down to 0,1 grams and up to 500 grams.
