Have you ever considered where tales of mermaids came from? Why they remain so fascinating? And why so many of them end in tragedy?

I did a little poking around, and found some interesting bits and pieces:
Mermaids on Wikipedia
The Mermaid of Zennor - whence I found a name for my socks: Morveren, heroine of a not entirely tragic tale of love and music.

No sock pic, it is the same as yesterday, but still fabulous!

PS Lucy Neatby, who I think is my new knitting-crush, has some wild things on her site, not least of which is this insane 'scarf'! Oh, and then I found this vest!!!
