Not Quite Pisces
Right now these socks are currently available for test knitting. If you’re interested, check out the link above.
I saw the yarn—beautiful shades of hand-dyed red and blue—and I knew I had to knit with it. It seemed to be calling to me from the wicker basket, just begging to be knit.
So I asked Ms. Hatch and she said I could use it… as long as I made her a pair of socks. I was struck with the fish idea immediately, and I looked up at her hopefully, “You’re a Pisces, aren’t you?”
Pisces is almost certainly my favorite sign in the zodiac. I think that started out because when I was quite small I was convinced that my dad was the ultimate ideal of humanity, so that if he was a Pisces, that must be the best sign there could be; and the more I read about astrology, the more I am intrigued by fish and unrealistic fantasies and psychic powers…
But as it turned out, Ms. Hatch wasn’t a Pisces—much to my disappointment—but that didn’t stop me from making her these fabulous fishy socks.
