He is lovely, in a kinda creepy way!

I like how his arms curl round.

Maybe you could call him Paul (after Paul the psychic octopus)?

Wow he is totally awesome!
He looks very realistic, I think Aiolos would be a good name for him. It means quick moving/agile in Ancient Greek, after one of the Wind Gods. (I'm a bit of a mythology nerd!)  Tongue

Thanks, everyone! Paul the psychic octopus...I had never heard of him, but that's really funny.  Cheesy He does look the part of a cranky cephalopod, too! I appreciate all of the input!

Bootchacka - I worked his tentacles in the round, starting with, I think, about 50 ch. I sc'd in each ch, back towards the body, then moved onto the next tentacle. I went around the edges with about 6 rows of sc. I hope that makes sense. I didn't intend for him to be curly, but I was happy with the result.

You're from Michigan? Then you should definitely name him Al, after the Detroit Red Wings octopus!  Smiley
