Gone Fishin'!

My son's godfather has two kids, both of whom had their birthdays recently. So, I gave them fish - hats, that is... Knitty published a just-too-cute pattern for a one-size-fits-all Fish Hat [Dead or Alive?] in their Winter 08 issue and I couldn't resist. I decided for fun on both to glue big googly eyes on the fish instead of going with sewing/embroidering felt circles per the pattern and I really like how they turned out.

Here's the one I made for the little guy - I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn for the solid colors, and for the variegated stripes I used Red Heart Kids in Crayon:

For my friend's daughter I used Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice in Eggplant, Olive, Pink and Espresso:
