Lend us a Squid...........


One knitted squid, complete and ready to go off to his new home. I've added glass eyes once again to this pattern - makes the whole thing so much better, seems to pull it all together somehow. This was quite fiddly to do (those tentacles!!) but a lot of fun - I might just have to make another one...

WOW!!! Very cool.

Your knitting is soooo neat! Love the way you stuffed the tentacles so they seem to almost move by themselves.

Great pattern. :-)
