I Believe in Mermaids! July 11, 2012

Filed under: Adventure Knitting,Knitting Travels,Tancook Cottage,Yarn — happystitches @ 08:02

You might remember the incident with the seagull last year? He/she, a bird of exceedingly fine taste, made off scot-free with a skein of Curious Creek Omo Wool/Silk yarn.
Full story
Since then we have been wondering: whatever became of it? It was such lovely yarn. Did it line a luxurious nest or end up in Davy Jones’ locker? Now we know the answer: it was revealed when Hillary happened to be out fishing with a friend this spring.

The story is told in pictures below!

PS It’s rather fishy that the knitting Mer-person came up with a shawl using the very same type of Holes that are to be featured in my new book “The Little Book of BIG Holes for Hand-knitters!”

    That’s a pretty “fishy” story, Lucy! (But I like the knitted results.)

  2. Laurie Says:

    That is the most stylish lobster I have ever laid eyes on.

  3. yarnsmith Says:

    I hope it’s not a boiled wool jacket by now!

  4. Tink Lizzie Says:

    I think the lobster knitted it with those ‘needles’ that are sticking out the top of its head.

  5. Kim Says:

    A lobster cozy – that’s got to be original!

  6. Karen Says:

    The water must be exceptionally cold this year, wonder if others will be appropriately dressed as well!

  7. henhouse Says:

    Mighty fine lobster with a mighty fine jacket. I hope you threw him/her back to knit another day. I foresee a series here. Crabs next, Maybe a children’s book. I was a children’s librarian and I am telling you this would make a fantastic book!

    Only true Canadian could come up with such a neat story. My Dad would have loved it! Lucky lobster!

    Wow, wow, wow! Pictures like these are what makes life worth living. There’s always something magical (or at least delightful) happening somewhere.

  11. Pat Says:

    That is absolutely hilarious! I wonder if the lobster enjoys knitting lace! LOL What is even more amazing is that it actually turned up at all!

    Oh Lucy, What a story, Thanks for sharing. So sorry to hear that you broke your wrist. I’m a biker also, each time I go out I say a little prayer that I,ll be safe.
    My wish for you is a speedy recovery. I,m a very good Fan of yours.

    Hahahaha! Hope your bones knit back together nicely! : ) Becky from Omaha, who has knit a pair of Fiesta socks with purple as the solid color! : )

    We bought soft shells right off the boat in Maine. No cute outfits there : ( Perhaps the Newfie trend hasn’t made it down this far. Tell you’re lobsters to get the word out!
