Being home is nice. And I have a chance to futz around outside a little. We actually have a yard. This concept has become slightly abstract after too many years of living in an apartment hole. As a result of playing outdoors a tiny bit more, less knitting gets done to post. I've enlisted this fellow to help me kill two birds with one stone. The yarn is Patons Merino Wool Classic, overdyed with paste food coloring. The pattern is of course Hansi Singh's octopus. This one is made using the book pattern, which is substantially different from the one I purchased long ago from her Etsy site. The legs are ganglier, the head and mantle are longer. Interesting.
