About a year ago I finally learned how to crochet. My friend Eve, had a pattern for a fish washcloth and she taught me how to make it. It involves increasing and decreasing and is good practice for some basic skills. At the time we were living in a condo, waiting for our home to be built and I was driving the kids to school and picking them up and waiting in the car a lot. So I would bring the fish pattern and ball of sugar and cream yarn with me and make fish while I waited. Now I have more fish wash clothes than a person could use.
