For years, I’ve been telling anyone who will listen that I need a clone. In a perfectly cloned life, I’m showering my family with love and affection and the other woman house cleaning. So, if anyone reading this is in need of a test subject, I’m your gal!
My problem isn’t unique. Moms all over the world have to balance out the wants and needs of their families while keeping themselves in balance because if Momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy.
In order to keep my balance and find rest for myself, I must sometimes force it. One way I keep my balance, literally, is through yoga. Another way to give my body rest when I’ve been running for everyone else, is to crochet. It forces me off my feet and my perpetually busy mind is calmed through the repetitive motion of hooking yarn.
One of my favorite things to crochet are dishcloths. Quirky, I know, but follow me. I have my reasons.
- They work up quickly and can be finished in one sitting, thereby providing immediate gratification. Results, people!
- They are functional. Everyone must was dishes.
- And in the case of this sushi dishcloth, they are kitschy and cute!
Work up a few dishcloths with this free crochet pattern and give a little sushi love. Who doesn’t love kitschy kitchen crochet thingys?
