Oh my, octopi!

Is there an octopus in the house? I wish that I could claim that this little bit of whimsical knitting came from my own industrious little fingers, but alas, it does not. But it was so damn cute, that it needed to be shown to the blogosphere in all it's retro colored beauty.

Could you swim by my place tonight? I'll give you more than eight good reasons to stay!!!!

If this had not been a special request order for a mutual friend, this would have landed in my handbag somehow, and come home with me. By this point, we would be on a first name basis and I would feel free to share with y'all some of the deep blue secrets that I had ferreted out over seafood cocktails.

The creator of the cute creature of the sea is my friend, Mary for Miss Lynar out of lovely yarn colors that were inspired by a vintage VW bug in Lynar's past.

This awesome pattern, and more, can be found here by Hansigurami. Damn, but if this girl ain't talented!

Hansi Singh also now has an entire book of her incredible knit amigurami = check it out!
