Double Weave Introductions

My 5 year old son was very excited when he saw that I was going to be weaving a fish, and he promptly gave it a name--Harry. When he realized that Harry had a brother, we had to come up with a second name! My great uncle was named Harry, and he had three brothers. I was glad when my grandfather's name, Fred, was chosen.

So, without further ado, here are the double weave fish brothers--Harry & Fred! (And yes, the white of the fish on the left should be the same color as the background of the fish on the right...I am still learning to work with photoshop to improve my pictures!)

Harry and Fred are adorable!

That book is called Folk Shawls, by Cheryl Oberle; in the back of it it's got adds for Folk Knitting with Estonian patterns, Folk Mittens, with some amazing geometric patterns that remind me of the Jan Brett children's books, which are Scandinavian I believe, and it also lists Folk Socks.

This is such a cute design. What are you going to use it for?

Right now I'm contemplating a baby blanket...but maybe not with this particular design. :)
