Not the greatest picture in the world, the wool is actually more of a leafy green- it looks kind of khaki here, but I couldn't get a decent picture without flash, so it's kind of washed out.
Anyway, this is the giant squid I just made- I'm kind of proud, as it's the first item I've made without a pattern.
He is pretty much the cutest cephalopod I've yet seen.
His body is crocheted, his tentacles and.. pointy head.. bits are knitted- his eyes are buttons, as these have the highest adorability factor.
I'm thinking of making a few of these and maybe some other animals (oh man, I wanna make a narwhal) and then possibly setting up an etsy store, but I think first I'd have to make enough of them not to fall totally in love with each creature I make.
His name is Simon.
