I felt the need for a quick knit last night, and after being picky enough that I wouldn't knit any fish other than the true Festive Fish pattern I'd had to rule those out (but the book is on order). So Oncleows it was. Only problem was I'd got lots of mystery yarn to use up and no dpns bigger than about 4mm (certainly not any shortish ones). So having fiddled around last night, I have upped the pattern to 48 stitches (rather than 30) and am playing with 4mm needles. It's not going terribly quickly the seconds time and I'm finding my left hand is actually getting pretty painful - not sure what that's about but it's enough to make me give up for now.
