I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

For whatever reason, pincushions are one of my absolute favorite things to make. This one was made for the wonderful Mellius01 in the Box of Color Swap. She had several octopuses on her Pinterest, so I tweaked the idea a bit and crocheted a Kraken for the top of the pincushion.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is so neato! It almost looks like your Kraken is giving that wee boat a friendly hug.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Wicked crocheted Kraken, and I love the unfortunate little sailboat in its' suckered grip. Do the tentacles just hang free or do they have wire reinforcement for posing inside?

That is utterly amazing. Like other people commenting, I think the sailboat is amazing!
