Meet Octopus Prime!

Presenting Dave’s holiday knitting! A three foot Octopus! He was like a man possessed, sitting in his chair knitting away, while we were at his Mum’s, but it’s paid off because he got it done while we were there. The pattern is Opus the Octopus from Knitty, but our name of Octopus Prime is much better, clearly! The yarn is Ginger’s handdyed DK from Gingertwist Yarns. Yes, Dave spent £100 on yarn to knit a soft toy – I might be the chief knitter in our household but it’s not me that’s got the yarn budget problems! To be fair it was a treat since he’s just got a promotion, and it does look amazing, much nicer than a single coloured yarn would.

    That is so awesome! My 3 year old is looking over my shoulder, & now really really wants one but I’m not sure my skills are up to it. Or my budget (I’m not meant to be buying expensive yarn until I’ve used up my expensive stash…) – that’s such a great yarn choice, though, I don’t think it would look as good in anything else!

    Absolutely captivating! I had no idea it was so big until the Milo picture. Really stunning.
