An octopus a day....
...keeps Valerie entertained when she's stuck on the couch. Why was she stuck on the couch, you ask? Because she spent an hour on Saturday playing Cinderella.
While she does have sparkly clean floors now, she was rather hoping to be rewarded with a wicked pair of shoes, instead she got a spine that decided to pretend it's an unbendable iron rod instead.
C'est la vie. It gave me time to knit up this little cutie
This is of course, another great pattern from Amigurumi genius Hansi Singh. This is the second octopus I've made, and I absolutely love how they turn out!
In other news, I have frogged Skew and set the aside the yarn for now. I flirted a little with my Cheshire socks, and some new Camel/Silk yarn (before you freak out and mention my stash down - it's technically Wandering Cat Yarn and I'm testing it to see if it's worth carrying in the shop) before settling down and knitting the octopus.
I think I needed a quick-finish project to clean my palette - now it's back to some WIPs..... maybe....
