First Blooms On My Orchid Tree

Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefullyout of Nowhere)arranging
a window,into which people look(while
people stare
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
(carefully to
and fro moving New and
Old things,while
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.
--E.E. Cummings

Fish and more fish!... and one poser named Winnie.

Here's another cool fish link.

A Fish Blanket

I recently surfed into the fish blanket on Stephanie’s blog (great color flow) and in the Knitter’s Review forum. Since this would make a good, quick baby blanket, I searched for the pattern. The original pattern appeared in a knitting magazine years ago. Here’s an example.

More surfing returned other pattern variations featured here, here, and here. I’m starting one in acrylic (washable) for my niece who is expecting here first child. There is a good link at Knitter’s Universe to colorize a fish blanket and just for fun I’ve added a tessallation aquarium.

Here's my first fish – it's quick and easy to knit up.
