Triple Threat

This is Ollie. He's from Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh. He's made with Cascade 220 and size 2 dpns. I made him for my mom after she saw an octopus at Great Yarns in Everett, WA, last Thanksgiving.

This is Cedric. He's made from the same pattern, only with sock yarn leftovers and size 0 dpns. I made him after I made Ollie, because I saw a ton of sock yarn octopi on Ravelry and fell completely in love.

This is Celia. She's made from the same pattern, also with sock yarn leftovers and size 0 dpns. I made her after I made Cedric, because making octopi with sock yarn leftovers might now be my favorite thing to do.

Celia and Cedric are sweet on each other. Awwww.
I wanna hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand...


Celia now lives with Wendy, and Cedric lives with me.
I already have more sock yarn leftovers picked out to make another one...
and some worsted weight yarn picked out to hold three strands together to make a Giant Octopus!!! Beware!!

Brooke, I love how your mind works!

We don't see you for weeks, then discover you've been busy wrestling with octopi. That would have been my first guess to explain your absence. NOT!

I gotta get out of here before you infect me with octopus mania.

How appropriate that Celia is hanging on (by her 8 legs!) for dear life to a Starbucks sleeve!! :-)
Kisses!!
