One fin, two fin, red fin, blue fin...

Okay.. really only one of those statements is correct... one fin done!

It took almost the whole evening, but I finally managed to get a decent-looking fin on the mer-bag.

It's not quite how I'd first imagined it in my mind, but it works. And it will look even nicer once the other ones is on and everything is blocked out.

I should be able to finish up the other fin tonight, get all then ends tied in and get it on the blocking board. Being that it's chunky, and double thickness, it's going to take a little longer than normal to block, but you should see a finished product by the weekend.

And come the weekend, I've really  got to get a move on that darn sweater.. it's only five more weekends until Christmas... and I'm probably seeing the recipient before Christmas, so I really only have four weekends. Gah! Good thing I'm already on the sleeves!

I guess it landing on a Friday makes it even shorter. We are expecting snow this weekend and that always gets me in the mood. YOUR mermaid is adorable

You definitely nailed it! Our choir director gave us a reality check last week; only 3 more rehearsals until our Christmas program. Eek!
