They both join the other sea creatures in the bathroom: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242079.msg2669081#msg2669081

Squid

Pattern:
Squid-A-Licious by Hansigurumi

The only mod I made was making the body in one piece instead of two. I just ran a length of yarn through the middle and tightened it to make up for that.
---
Cuddle-Fish


Pattern: Cuttlefish by Hansigurumi

I used to eat copious amounts of dried cuttlefish (as a child). They're not really "fish". Obviously.

I really had to force myself to finish this one. There were many mistakes in the pattern (very unusual for Hansi shes pretty much a genius). I posted errata here: http://castandbind.blogspot.com/2008/06/couple-more-sea-creatures.html.
Its also a bit bigger than the other cepholopods- Id probably would have used sport-ish weight if I thought ahead I embroidered him with some stripeys to make him a bit more realistic, and cast off the fins with white for a little extra detail.

They're gorgeous and your workmanship is awesome! I just bought these patterns for my daughter - would you be able to elaborate on the problems you had with the cuttlefish? Thanks!!
