It finally arrived! I got my copy of Yummi Gurumi by Christen Haden and Mariarosa Sala, and though most people would prefer real sushi, I'm really enjoying the sushi crochet pattern. This book wouldn't be bad for beginners, and it's packed with interesting food patterns (I'll probably work on the sandwich next).
Here's what I have done of my sushi pattern so far. I was going to wait until I finished it to post, but I'm so busy these days, I figured I'd share my progress so far. Ok, I'll admit, I am kind of sad it's not real sushi...from a certain distance it actually looks tasty. But chewing on yarn is for cats, not people, so I'll pass. I've made many changes to my pieces compared to the instructions in the book, but I'm happy with how they are turning out. I will be gifting my friend (who got me hooked on sushi!) with his own fabulous set.
