This is a Weedy Sea Dragon. I was watching the new Discovery channel series Life last night (completely addicted to it) and these were on. I HAVE TO knit one. So I am picking out yarn today - fingering weight wool - and will start tonight. No pattern - least not til I am done with it. I'll start at the nose and it will be fun and possibly life size - they grow to about 18". They are related to Sea Horses but without the prehensile tail and are larger I guess.
Here is a Leafy Sea Dragon - also interesting but less easily knitted so I'll start with the other.
Just a note about hours - Sundays we will be closed and I have also shortened the hours on Saturday to 10-3 - If a class is scheduled til 4 it will still be til 4 but the store normally will be closed at 3.
