Despite my small town, Republican, God-fearing, beef-eating, conservative Midwestern upbringing, I knew from an early age that I was - in fact - none of those things myself.

I effing love sushi. I cannot get enough of it.
Additionally, sushi is one of my favorite things to knit. It's beautiful and simple and instantly recognizable.
This is a tuna sushi/sashimi set that I did for my lovely friend Heather to give as a get well gift to one of her friends.
Above is the way I packaged it for shipping. It's a little hard to see through the plastic lid, but I added a couple of pieces of pickled ginger and a dollop of green wasabi on the side.
I'm getting hungry now.
