Fun with Piranha

P1030461 (1000x667)My family and I spent Black Friday in Chattanooga at the Tennessee Aquarium.  Although it’s a 2 1/2 hour drive to Chattanooga, we have a membership to the aquarium and we’ve been a number of times.  I have a lot of favorites, love the seahorses and the jellyfish tanks, the rays touch tank and the silly penguins, but one of my other favorites are the piranhas.  The aquarium has two piranha tanks and they are great.  The first tank has a cut out where you can crawl under the tank, poke your head up and ‘swim’ with them.  It’s always a big hit with kids. In typical Black Friday fashion, the aquarium was a mad-house.  Even though we were there when the doors opened, the entire facility quickly filled up with lots and lots of little ones excited to see the amazing marine life.  We got lucky and had a couple quick moments to pose with these beautiful animals.

P1030466 (870x1000)The Piranha hat is included in the Indie Giftalong and although the discount period for the GAL is over, the pattern is included in my Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale where all Crochet by Darleen Hopkins patterns on Ravelry are 25% off.  Use coupon code ‘Gobble2013’ but hurry, the sale ends Tuesday 12/3/2013 midnight EST.

Aww, what a cutie!

Aww, what a cutie!

If you make this hat, I would LOVE to see you posing with piranha (in tanks only please!) while wearing it.  You can always post them on my Facebook page or email me at  Have fun!
