Question for you: I will need to embellish the tush on the longies I'm getting from the yarn for woollies swap: http://www.danceswithchairs.blogspot.com/
I think the longies color is a perfect base for fish! If I were to knit and then felt a fish, about how much do they felt? Is 25% of size a good guess? Does it depend on the type of wool? And will I need wool thread to sew on the embellishment?
I love the fish!! Forgive me, I may have missed something, but what are you using them for and where did you find that pattern??
