Note from Sundara...my daughter and her cousins went through big mermaid phase a few years ago and we had to buy them all mermaid tails on amazon that they'd hop around in and then fall over, because they were ridiculously impractical. My nephew, bless him, thought the tail would turn him into an actual mermaid, and sobbed for a good twenty minutes when he did not, in fact, turn into a real live mermaid. During that time, I spent hours looking for a mermaid inspiration photo and found nothing. Then last week, I come across this photo. Finally! Of course, they aren't into mermaids anymore. Sigh.
But that doesn't mean we adults can't be. I know there are a lot of you who still harbor mermaid fantasies and just because we are grown, doesn't mean we can't indulge ourselves. I thought sock yarn was appropriate, because, well, socks seems reasonable if you want to be an adult mermaid who has a job and responsibilities. You can put on your mermaid socks and go to work and know, even if it is a secret, that part of you is a mermaid, even if you the rest of you has to wear a business suit or something like that.
This color is gorgeous, but I feel like I've only scratched the surface of mermaid colors, so we might see this inspiration photo and some other iterations of mermaid colors in different yarns. Just to warn you. I may not be out of my mermaid phase.
Slightly under two batches available.
