I finally finished my big project for the year-- the squid hat pattern written by Strangebuttrewe/Craftster's arrmatie. It took 2 and a half balls of Cascade Eco, one set of 6.5mm DPNs, and a whole lot of time, but I'm ecstatic about the results. As the squid turned out roughly as long as I am tall, my original plan plan of using it as a plushie to squeeze while I went to sleep had to be modified somewhat.


A full length shot to start.


insert joke about tentacle pr0n here.


lastly, my Squidmas tree, complete with mini-cthulhu tree topper.

I think your lil squid is now my favorite plushie!  He's neat and serves a purpose!  I think the real question is:  does he have a name??
