fishy pics....

A few of you have requested pictures of my fish for my fish afghan. Carmella, my sweet kitty was a great helper. She spread out all the fish for me.

Here is another view of the fish. I have spun all of this wool and it has been a joy mixing all of the colors together. It is just as fun as knitting the fish. I have made many of the fish sitting in the waiting rooms of the hospital and at doctors appointments. Only 40 more to go!!! The great thing about this blanket is that it can be added onto at any time and made larger.

Several balls of wool that will be made into fish and one in progress. I am trying to make at least 2 a day and spinning a new color each day.

until next time.....

i did not lie.........

I am sure that most of you are wondering if I was lying about the taping of 3 shows last year. It has been so long since the taping I was beginning to wonder if it was all a dream. Well I guess my dream is finally coming true. One of my shows will be on TV on August 7th. Here is the link to the description Search for Marlo and you will find my episode.

I can hardly believe that my name is on the DIY website. I am quite nervous about watching myself on TV. It will be very odd. I am sure I will critique the heck out of myself.

Things are better with my husband. His medicine seems to be working really well and he has not had any seizures for about 4 weeks.

I have been working like crazy on my fish afghan. I have made 40 fish and need 80 for the afghan. I have chose to spin all of the yarn that is used in this afghan so it is taking a bit longer than it should. I also hand dyed most of the wool. The colors are gorgeous and I can't wait to put it together.

until next time........
