I turned the gauge swatch into a little bag. It is very heavy yarn and if I make it into a shrug, I would die of the heat! Hats and maybe a pillow might be a better use for the yarn. At least I got to use one ribbon flower and leaf from my stash from the ribbon flower period, hah!
I have become obsessed with the little fish from World of Knitted Toys but have not found the book in my usual places. I saw the fish on craftser. Could someone out there connected with Force whisper, "Knit the socks, Barb, knit the socks" please?
