Wow, now I realize how true the phrase "can't believe how time flies" is. This coming Sunday, April 29th...My husband and I will celebrate our 3rd Wedding Anniversary! or the day we signed the papers, since we didnt have an actual wedding.
Recently, actually 2 days ago, I began crocheting, and I thought why don't I crochet something as a gift for Hubbie?! At least make use of my new found skill! I think I did a pretty darn good job for someone who just started! When I saw these two A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E onigiri couple crochets at HandemadeKitty's blog, I just HAD to make them, I mean if you haven't know already my Hubbie is a sushi chef and this totally will make a awesome gift!!
