Boat Bloggin’

In case you guys were curious, this is where I spend my field days (see below 1). All those buckets are for different species of fish that we catch, sort, measure, and count. It is interesting to see the diversity of species in Long Island Sound, and how our catch varies depending on where we are.
But the days are long and the boat can feel pretty cramped, so it was really nice to come home to this yesterday (see below 2): new ‘happy anniversary’ yarn from the Fiasco! šŸ™‚ I’ve been itching to try this new base from Cephalopod Yarns, it is a laceweight mix of baby camel and silk. I’m thinking a long lacy cowl is in order, since there isn’t much yardage. What would you make with it?

Edited to add: sorry for the crap-tastic phone photos! Dunno what happened there…

  1. My brother-in-law is an expert on fish, living in Guernsey, and I know he would be fascinated to hear what you've been discovering. I recently heard that some fish are in the sound that are not typically there this time of year – are you seeing that, too? Love your new yarn. A lacy cowl or kerchief would be perfect!


  2. The boat still looks nice, even if it's cramped. I think you could probably get a decent cowl or scarf out of that yarn, it all depends on what you really want. I love the color though, he picked well (again!) šŸ™‚


  3. Oh, cool! Yes, the people I work with have been commenting on how much earlier we are seeing certain species. For instance, lots of baby scup (or porgy) when normally they wouldn't show up until closer to the fall.
