Hello! I made this squid for a friend at work; we are doing a personal swap, which is the first time I have swapped anything so it's very exciting ^_^ I used a pattern from Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/squid-5) except I french knitted the tentacles instead of crochting them. Mainly because I am lazy and am not very good at crocheting tiny tubes. But it totally worked! And it was a lot faster as well - laziness FTW!

I used acrylic yarn in purple (Moda Vera Marvel in 8ply) and a 4mm hook. The eyes are buttons, the short tentacles have pipe-cleaners in them so that they are posable, and it is stuffed with polyfill.



I haven't gotten my swap item yet - but Molly is spinning some red and gold sparkly yarn for me! How excitement!

I hope you like the squid! And the slightly better photos from using my new lightbox - even with only one lamp (need to go buy some more cheapies) it works pretty darn well! ^_^
