Mermaid finished! Another Tip.

My Mermaid is finished. I had such a good time, I want to make another immediately! I'll post pictures when I can, we're away from home. I think I need some kind of closure for it, though, whether hook and eye, button or a pin.

A hint for the short rows. On the rows where it says to knit X number of stitches less than the last row, knit to where you turn, then count the correct number of stitches for the next row and place a marker. Next row knit to the marker and turn, moving the marker to the next turning point. It made it a lot easier for me, as I didn't run into surprises as I knit past where I needed to be.
