Pinterest challenge for November - gone fishing


Hi,
Its time to show you my Pinterest Challenge item,   I found this fish on Pinterest a few months ago and after last months item I wanted something a bit easier,  did I get it,  not really.
This Goldfish pattern was a bit muddle their are two types of fin,  one padded and one ribbed,  I chose the ribbed one.  Its knitted in orange double knitting wool,   the mouth I could not quite get right I had a few goes at it and this was the best I could do with it.  The eyes are sewn on with white and and a dot of black wool, in the pattern they use eyes that move but I find people who buy toys these days don't want eyes that might come out when the kids are playing with them.
The pattern is by Susan Dennis and a link to her pattern.
I have no idea what Suzanne (link to her blog) and Carollyn (link to her blog) have done but I am sure their creations will be lovely.  Perhaps both of them will be better than my fish who knows.
Do pop over and see their creations I am sure they would be delighted to see you.
Until we meet again Take care
                       Hugs
                    Margaret
