Would it be weird to crochet a halibut and then mount it on my wall like it was a prized fish that I caught? Because I might be convinced to do that.

It would be *excellent* to mount such a halibut.

One of the minor domestic joys of my life is a natty crocheted fish someone gave me as a doodad, but it holds nearly-gone soap and is a good scrubbie. I’d been wondering how to replace it if it wears through. And now!

Reminds me of seeing this. And this.

That "lava pillow" is bullshit. It's a boat fender.

Aw, these are all really cute! They also all seem very beginner friendly; a few beyond-basic stitches but nothing really fussy, so if you have only managed some granny squares or a simple amigurumi these would all be good options to attempt. If anyone wants to try but feels confused feel free to memail me and we can walk through it on discord or something.
