I left that Mountain Colors out on the dining room table so that I could ponder the perfect pattern for it, and it's been nagging at me: the colors remind me of something, but what?

Then, this morning, I got it:

Hmm. This calls for a fish-themed sock pattern, I think. Vogue Stitchionary, here I come!

Ooh! I was just looking at the herringbone and fishtail lace patterns in my perpetual knitting calendar! Let me know if you want to, uh, "borrow" it...

By the way, you were right about the camera. Please don't die of jealousy. If I were a rich girl ("na na na na na na na"), I totally would have bought one for you, too.

Yum.... fish socks.

(PS - I like Yuck Mouth more than Billy Collins, too)

There's the tessalated fish pattern too. But that's more of a blanket than a sock.

By the way, where'd the fish come from?

I cant wait to see the fishy socks, and I'm so sad that I missed the latest sockapaloooza because I was in Argentina. I will be living it vicariously through your blog!

I had to come out of "Lurks-ville" and comment about your meme. I'm living in Austin right now (5 years) and love it as much as you do! We have a new yarn store called Bluebonnet Yarn Shop, as well as Hill Country Weavers. Come on back!

Those colors do look exactly like a betta we once had! Good luck on finding a fish pattern.

Great colors and I think you're spot on with the Beta fish linkup. I've just started some of my own socks (not fish-socks, tho) and I pulled the Tiny Scales patterns from the Stitchery (#221 or 222). This looks like fish scales!

That would be the last thing I would ever associate that yarn with, but it absolutely is the colors of that fish!

I can't wait to see what stitch it inspires.
