Well, after a bit of a delay with being down sick with the flu for a week, I'm back with an update! I'm currently working on the Octopus pattern by Hansi Singh. It appears in her "Amigurumi Knits" book. Now I am making it quite a bit smaller than called for in the book after seeing it done that way by a fellow Ravel-er. So instead of a worsted weight yarn on size 5 needles, I'm using sock yarn on size 1 needles. It should be quite cute when it's done. Here are some pics of the progress so far. This first one shows a few of the tentacles knit, but not seamed.

This second picture shows the tentacles all knit, seamed and with pipe cleaners inserted. The pipe cleaners will make the legs fully pose-able!

And here are the tentacles all joined in the round. This is the view of the bottom.

This is all I have to show so far, but I'm working on the head, so it shouldn't be too long til this little guy is done.

Well, off to the kitched to start on the holiday cooking, but before I go, here's a wish to all of you...hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Looks like you've got a great start! The legs are definitely the most tedious part of that pattern. I love the idea of making it using sock yarn, can't wait to see it finished!
