Hello folks! Another sneak peek about what is forthcoming & fishy.
I was surprised to find so many very interesting & artful old photos of women fishing…
These are but a few,
Finding these photos has rather set a theme. A theme which seems to be finding itself, as I knit and knit samples of my new design.
Something about women …. and… fishing?
Well yes, that’s about it in a nutshell. More to come…
for now I’m “gone fishing” .
but I will be back again very soon, with some more knitting and more hints to the forthcoming Fishy Thing!
Who knew you could fish in a bustle and really groovy boots? Those items on your chair look ree-all purdy. (Colors to dream of.) But what is it with you and fishing and the sea? Where did you grow up, and are you feeling landlocked? I’m beginning to think you are a reincarnated Scots/Irish fisherman. (Imagine a conciliatory smile here.)
Terry, I am giving a good chuckle.. yes, yes, yes… landlocked in the hot arid Pacific inland, with my North Sea ancestry beckoning me out to the piers. Sigh…
(( and thank you so much for liking the whats-up-and-coming!)) xx
Oh, dear. You are a fish out of water. (Snigger, snort, sorry :» )
I love the first young girls photo. It looks as if she raced home from school, grabbed her pole and straight out to go fushn’
Oh yes, I can see that girl as you!
Don’cha just LOVE those shoes! xx
I like the lady sitting in the chair. It looks as though someone tied her apron strings to the chair rungs. Hmm…
Looks almost that way, but I think she’s actually there of her own will!
Always the trusting optimist, you.
Very interesting photographs and the one with Lucille Ball is my favorite! I can hardly wait to get a closer look at your new design.
Hi Dawn! Very soon…. I’m just biding time with these silly posts. xx
I can’t wait to see your new design chooky! The little snippets look fabulous. x
Kelly, well you know, as chief, cook, & bottlewasher, knitting an ensemble of something takes a bit of time. Very soon I’ll have the last off the needles, promise! xx
I love the vintage photos of women fishing. Your ” fishy little things” look very interesting. 🙂
Hi Wen, knew you’d love these. Next post will be about fish probably as well. 🙂 xx
Biding my time until I am finished with this last sample…
