. . .when the squid return to the trees:
Li'l Squid ended up as a cyclops, inspired by the squid in the movie Coraline. The yarn is bits and pieces of Noro Kureyon color 92. Like my other tentacled creations I didn't follow a pattern, I just started knitting until I had what I liked.
The funny thing is that the yarn used to be in the form of a hat, and it's been on three of the world's continents. I wore it when I visited Japan, Scotland, and Italy a few years ago. I decided I didn't really like the hat very much, so I unraveled it. That's one of the great things about knitting.
