I bought a book of knit amigurumi patterns a few years ago. I’ve made a lot of things from the book, but kept thinking about the jellyfish pattern. Just one jellyfish seemed weird and I didn’t know how to get around that problem. So when Lloyd and I talked about making a mobile for our daughter, I knew what I wanted to do. Two trips to the yarn store and a few months later, we had an fun mobile (The knitting was easy. Finding the time was … difficult.)!
The jellyfish is knit in five parts: a body and four tentacles.
Attach the tentacles to the body and you get a jellyfish.
The completed mobile in the nursery.
I can report the mobile is well loved. Holly gets excited about it on a regular basis. Success!
One of the few benefits of the quarantimes is extra gardening time since you are not going anywhere anyway! The unfortunate part is that there are not a lot of open nurseries or garden centers so our vegetable patch is looking a little sparse but, on the plus side, we have a lot of perennial flowers and herbs and even some overwintering veggies. Enjoy the various views of our spring here in West Seattle (and hopefully we are getting into enough of a groove that posts will be more frequent again soon).
Holly likes exploring the vast (to her) backyard.
A couple different sorts of tulips, daffodils, and some purple flower I don’t know. Up next are the rhododendrons and roses.
Made a pesto with the local parsley, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and Swiss chard.
