That's unexpected, isn't it? I've gone off the rails and am making an octopus.. well, at least one octopus, maybe more. I saw this little guy on someone else's Year of Projects list and I had to make him. Immediately.

The pattern calls for chunky yarn, but I'm substituting Cascade 220 held double; that seems to be working out okay. The crocheting is done: head, mantle and eight legs all complete. What's left now is the sewing and look at all those ends. That's a bit off-putting, but it's time to suck it up and get it done.

"Why are you making an octopus?" Gavin asked. I don't know. I just don't know.
