R.........ainbow Connection

Rainbows have always intrigued me, so when I entered a challenge the other day with a rainbow theme, I couldn't resist! Here is my collection of amigurumi fish done in each of the colors of the rainbow. Each "angel" fish is about 7"x8" and is based on a pattern from Lion Brand yarn. They are entirely of acrylic yarn and lightly stuffed with polyester fiberfill. I can just see them decorating the walls of a child's room or playroom, or even in a bathroom!
The very creative Natasha of DoodleStar has been inspiring artists every Friday with a theme, and then posts about those who participate the following Thursday on her blog. This week, with the Rainbow Theme, I thought of a pattern I had been meaning to try and did seven of these angel fish, in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. It was a happy experience and I hope to follow one of her inspirations again. You can see her blog post about the rainbow entries at http://thursdaysweettreat.blogspot.com/2009/03/exceptionally-talented-artists-create.html
Why not join her every week?

I just saw them the other day at the challenge, but didn't read well enough I guess b/c I didn't know they were yours :) I must have been too engrossed in looking at all the rainbow beauties

Natasha is the most darling human...I listened to her Blockhead Radio Live interview, and frequent her blog. Saw those adorable fish and thought it was a wonderful idea for the theme.

Fun, fun, fun!!!
