I am a sushi nut. I love the freshness and the flavor. Lots of protein. So healthy too.
Although, sushi will soon be a thing of the past for me. IF a recently PASSED LAW in the US is not stopped by YOU, my American readers, right now: the law that allows GMO salmon to be sold unlabeled to our fresh fish restaurants and supermarkets.
Once a particular type of food, such as salmon, is produced modified and is mixed with God’s food, there is no turning back!!! Sooner all food in that food group will become modified. Wild Atlantic salmon will be a thing of the past forever. That’s my sense of the crisis in the situation. Please say NO to GMO. That’s all there is to it. Thank you for taking action to preserve pure food for our and future generations.
OK. This post is about a crochet pattern. Yes it is. Just to remind me then of that food I once loved so much, here are some sushi coasters and a free crochet pattern to make them. This is an easy-peasy crochet projects for which you need 6 colors of mercerised cotton yarn. Great to use up some leftover yarn. A set of 6 makes a wonderful housewarming, hostess or Christmas gift for that special person who appreciate handmade presents and loves California rolls.
