Ice Cream and Fish

The Knee-a-politan socks are done, I've actually worn, washed and dried them twice now, and they fit beautifully.

Trekking XXL has been a favorite of mine for awhile now, and this yarn is so delicious that I actually bought another skein I found on Ebay while I was knitting these socks. I have a pair of thin mittens or gloves in mind for the new skein and knee sock leftovers.

Next on the needles is a tessellation study with fish made from sock yarn leftovers. I lack the patience to make an entire blanket of fish on size 0 needles... so I'm thinking about a pillow front instead. The fish will be knit end-to-end in strips, and then seamed together. I'll add faux seams between the tails and noses within the strips to keep the illusion that they were all knit seperately by someone with more patience than me!
