Q: How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: The fish!
The Fish is fun to knit as the stitch pattern changes often. It uses only 1 skein of a softspun yarn (such as Cascade Lana Bambu, Malibrigo Worsted or PuntaYarns Merisoft) in solid or semi-solid but really shines when you make it with hand-paint yarn. The Fish is a great gift for a guy or gal of any age.
