Yes, I know that it’s Thursday.
This past weekend, we had some friends come over for a visit. They have two 1-year-olds, so this is the first time they’ve been over in a while. In honor of this momentous occasion, and because we didn’t get to their birthday, I
foolishly agreed to make them a little something. This was it.
I finally finished the tentacles on the last one this afternoon, so it’ll be going with my husband to work tomorrow. I managed to crank out one-and-a-half in a day before my hands gave out. I made them out of the Red Heart that was suggested in the pattern, Nautie; it’s been quite some time since I’ve worked with acrylic yarn, and I think there are the same issues that I’ve had in the past with cotton. If I knit for too long, it hurts. But they’re done.
I also, purposely, left off the eyes. I think their intended recipients will forgive me.
