I’m moving in to my dorm this Sunday (but there will still be a Sunday post, because of the magic of WordPress queueing) and my mum just finished what will be the crowning glory of the room. Last year she said she’d make me a quilt for college, so I designed a goldfish design made up of hexagon motifs, we picked out fabric together, and a year later, here we are. I know this is a yarn blog, but yarn people are well-able to appreciate other textile arts.
The goldfish is based off of butterfly-tail goldfish. My favorite breed is actually the ranchu, because they are precious egg fish, but butterfly tails are so striking from above that I had to choose them.

I’m so happy. I think it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Now off to pack the rest of my things for college…
