Feeling Crabby?

The America's Knitting website has an awesome little cornflower blue, green-blue and orange sweater - a Rock Crab Sweater - that is perfect for those of us who can't get enough of the Connecticut shoreline during the summer months (love Hammonasset and Rocky Neck!).

These little guys look harmless holding up their claws as if in surrender, but in the aquatic world, both Pacific and Atlantic rock crabs are considered the meanest of the crustaceans.
They're big-eyed and popular for eating (don't read this part aloud!)
Three little crabs seem to dance across the bottom. It's lovely.
And made from a Fox Island Folkwear Kit. Purchased from eBay!!
