The crochet tail is by Susan Carlson, and is actually a mermaid-tail shaped blanket. It is perfect for those chilly evenings when reading, doing homework, or watching television. The pattern is $5.50 US, and is available at Ravelry, Etsy or Craftsy. Links can be found in this article by Ms. Carlson.
Photographer Joe McNally paid a visit to Weeki Wachee Springs, the city of live mermaids, to cross an item off his bucket list: shooting mermaids.
You can find the full story of Mr. McNally's visit at Profoto, where columnist Rebecca Ahremark has the details.
I first talked about the mermaids of Montana's Sip 'n Dip Lounge back in September of last year. Punch recently posted a story on the tiki bar in an article by Sarah Baird.
"Today, a full wall of glass paneling behind the Sip ‘n Dip’s bar reveals an underwater world of (ladies clad as) mermaids who swim, twirl and blow kisses to bar patrons."
If you are ever in the area, be sure to drop by and wave to the mermaids!
This year's mermaid convention in North Carolina generated a wealth of press coverage. This story comes from China Daily, and includes a number of great photos. Some you may have seen before.
Best wishes and starfishes,
