Happy Holidays

When I was growing up, one of the tradition in my country was to have a live carp in the bathtub. The fish was purchased from a market, carried home, and stayed in a bathtub until it was time to be our Christmas Eve dinner. As a child I was fascinated by the slow moving carp, but I never ate the fish.

Three years ago, my child wanted to have a fish in the bathtub. I knitted one and we named him Karel (Charlie, in English language). This is how the knitting pattern for Charlie, the fish started.

To celebrate Karel's third year as our Christmas carp, I have created promotion in my Ravelry store.
If you enter code Karel between now and December 29th 2015 you will receive 15% off of all of my knitting patterns.

I wish you a wonderful holidays with your family and friends.

And a little preview for the New Year. In January I will have another toy Mystery KAL in my group Stana's critters etc on Ravelry.

Tina, Mystery KAL

Thank you for visiting my little corner filled with knitted toys.
