As a disclaimer, having a stuffed squid suddenly gives you these urges to take pictures of your squid doing strange activities. I just can't help myself.
Here is squiddy pre-felting. His tentacles are about 8" longer than his legs. And God only knows who he's text messaging.
I felted squiddy by hand because he's tentacle mania, and I was afraid some tragedy would befall him in the washer. After about two hours wrestling with him in the kitchen sink I lost interest, plus the Star Trek marathon on Spike was over, so I called it quits. He hasn't lost all his stitch definition, but he's pretty firm, so I'm fine with it.
Here's squiddy reclining.

He was intended to be a gift, but as you can tell, I'm a little attached to him. I think I may just buy my friend a T-shirt and hope she forgets that I was ever knitting her anything.
The pattern used was here:
The only noteable change was that I didn't use foam balls for eyes. Instead I knit 1/2 spheres, felted and stuffed them, and sewed them into his eye sockets. Thanks for looking!
