Crochet Fish

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.



These aren't even all of them, some have disappeared around the house.  By then end I was making small fish with the leftover yarn. The fish vary in size depending on how tight I held things, I got better with gauge as time went on. It kept my hands busy and was a lifesaver during those waits, I also read a few books while waiting as well. One ball of the sugar and cream yarn made two fish. I like the orange the best.
