Sushi amigurumi

I knitted these adorable amigurumi sushi for my friend Danica's birthday, she's a big fan of sushi. I used an Amy Polcyn knitting pattern off Ravelry for free and I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. I presented them in a sushi box so sadly I had to buy and eat some sushi as part of the project, it was a noble sacrifice.

Apologies for the rubbish photo, it's been one of those weeks where I seem to be constantly running around 10 minutes behind myself so I finished these off about 5 minutes before I had to leave to get to her party. I took a quick, slightly fuzzy, orange photo and wrapped them straight up. In case you're not sure, there's 2 tekka maki, 2 california rolls, 2 tamago nigiri, some pickled ginger and wasabi.

I also gave her one of my homemade tote bags, she seemed pretty pleased with them both. I like making totes for folks (ha, rhymes!), they're so simple but so pretty and I can make them look quite professional now. I want to experiment with zips and inside pockets and whatnot in the future.

We ate tapas and drank wine, it was a good night!

Damn straight you make them look professional! Mine arrived in the mail yesterday and it's fantastic. It's so sturdy with the lining and all, it's a really good tote. Used it immediately today and I love it. It's so much roomier than I thought too. Thanks again :)
