It started with Squiddy, who was to be a gift for my friend. I sort of got really attached, realized I couldn't part with him, and decided to whip up a mini-squid, Squiño, to give to her instead. For a consolation prize, he's pretty darn cute.
Squiño is based on the same pattern as Squiddy, but 1/2 size. The bonus was that he only took one week to make. I used Lamb's pride worsted on size 6 needles.
Pre-felting, he was pretty wonky
But felting really evened out his tentacles
Squiddy adjusted well to fatherhood. He reads Squiño stories,
Plays hide-n-go-seek with him,
But piggyback rides are Squiño's favorite.
Of course, parenthood has its more mundane aspects
But there are some things a young squid has to learn before going on to his next home.
Geez, Squid-making is way too much fun. I gotta quit this and get back to sweaters. Thanks for looking!
