Octopus

I finished Middle's octopus.  I used a pattern out of Tiny Yarn Animals: Amigurumi Friends to Make and Enjoy.   By Tamie Snow.  

I'm about half way through my shirt and should have it done for the graduation.  If I have time I may sew up a skirt to go with it.   But that's a pretty big if. 

I've finally finished all the cleaning that I need done for the party, except for the bathroom.  It's amazing to me how quickly two small children can destroy a clean bathroom.   I finally have some time now to relax, watch some Cheers reruns and do nothing, absolutely nothing.  :)

That's adorable! You're so talented in so many ways ...not the least of which is finding time to knit, sew and crochet while you're raising your kids. Good for you, Mom!

Aww shucks...:)
Truth be told though, I have to MAKE time to knit and crochet. I think if I didn't, I would probably go insane. Knitting and crochet is very calming. It's like yoga for your brain, lol.

i love it....how did u make the tentacles for it...i would love to know unless do you have a pattern for it

The tentacles are made in the round in pretty much the same way as the basic body is made, only on a smaller scale. I can't actually give you the pattern because it isn't my own pattern, it's a copyrighted pattern out of Tamie Snow's book Tiny Yarn Animals: Amigurumi Friends to Make and Enjoy. It's a good book though, has TONS of cute little animals to make and all of them are beginner level easy. I got my copy off of Amazon for about $5.
