Saturday Snapshot: Blue devil anglerfish

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.   To join in, just post a photo (new or old) but one of your own and add your link to Alyce’s post.

This is a picture of a blue devil anglerfish I knit for my stepdaugther. This pattern is from Hansi Singh’s book, Amigurumi Knits.  It’s also on Ravelry, if you know anyone in your life who is just dying to have a knit anglerfish.  You can also add a parasitc male, which I elected not to for my stepdaughter.  If you’d like to know more about parasitic males and the reproductive cycle of the anglerfish, check out this cartoon, which is hilarious.  I don’t think this is why my stepdaughter picked the anglerfish out of the book when I asked her which animal she wanted.  She named her anglerfish Carl, and I did not feel compelled to point out to her that this was a female anglerfish, because sometimes, you’d just rather not go there.
