Knitted Sushi for Japan Tsunami Relief

sushi1, originally uploaded by sunfleur1.

I am "selling" these hand-knitted sushi set (plate and chopsticks not included). Free shipping. $15 a set includes 3 rolls and sashimi with a dollop of wasabi and pickled ginger. All proceeds (except etsy's cut) go the American Red Cross for Japan disaster relief. Contact me here for details.

Just a little larger than actual sized sushi... each set is custom made from yarn I had. The yarn was free, it's mostly acrylic, and knitting keeps me from worrying about people I never met... but pray fervently that they will make it. And I feel good doing this. Each set is hand made to order (just like the real thing!)

Get Sushi!

I already contributed to the Red Cross for their relief fund. And I want to give more. Can you help?

and you too! I was luckily given a batch of felted wool from a lovely seller on etsy to play with, the colors were just right for making peaches. Aren't these cute? I am really happy with how they turned out.

I may get a chance to sell my things locally at a farmers market. I am looking for suppliers of of wool in CT so I can support locals with my finished products too. I plan on offering handspun yarns and needle felted fruits and veggies. Fun!
