so, here she is!

my friend olivia is moving to florida(Booooo!) and we will see her for the last time tomorrow(but we will still constantly e-mail!)

last night i learnt to crochet.i started a hat and then needed a break(short attention span....) and was looking at some neon yellow acrylic stuff i had....

and THEN i saw this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=180409.0 and knew i had to make a neon octapus!

she is very shoddy to be honest (too gappy, mouth and legs glue gunned on in frustration and loss of focus(attention span again)) but that isnt the point.

She is a going to be given to olivia tomorrow as something tells me and octapus may like some sun!(although i have seen one and they are wierd/scary/soooo cool!)

she will be our very own roaming gnome, bringing us snaps of Olivia in her new house etc.


back.see what i mean about gappy? i clearly have not got the hang of my guage yet!

with a face


with a bow Smiley

like i said, she isnt great but i cant wait to see pics of her at her new home!

He's a very cute octopus and I'm sure she will love him!!  When I first saw him I thought he was a plump piece of buttered popcorn.  I think I like him as popcorn better  Cheesy

Cute octopus guy. If you use a smaller hook, you'll have less gaps. Pull tighter and check the band on your skein of yarn to figure out what hook to use. If you don't have the band, use the smallest hook you can grab the yarn with without shredding the yarn into strings. Over time you'll be able to just pick up the right hook to go with the yarn without even looking at the band. It just takes some experience.
