Actually, Sarah's going to be all over this post. First we had a yarn swap (post tomorrow! I need to upload pictures.) and I added a few extras including an octopus. Woa, speaking of Jeanette, this is some yarn she sent me in the first yarn swap we had. It was a hat that was supposed to be felted, but the yarn wasn't animal fiber. I was luckily enough to get the insanely large thing and frog it for cute cephalopods.
Baby Octopus by RubyTuesday via Craftster.
Yarn: Weird and semi-bulky.
Hook: H (5 mm)
No mods, and no notes, just a straightforward octo.
It was my friend's birthday...kinda, on 29 February. Kinda because she was born on the leap year, so technically she didn't get a birthday. I made her Monstie from Sarah's pattern, and she left me a Facebook message saying thanking me for the "two-legged octopus? The Duopus?" Haha. I've sent her an octopus before. Thus it will always be known as a Duopus. Monstie 'nuthin.
Yarn: Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice in Rose Mist
Hook: my new E (3.5mm) ergonomic hook
Notes: The body's a tad long, and I think I went a little overboard with the mouth, but she was well-received.
Tomorrow: yarn pr0n
