Octopus!
Anyone want an octopus?
I was curious how fast an little amigurumi critter would be to make, and the answer is "very", having started it yesterday.

Oooh, so cute! I totally want one.

Ooh, having not finished in time for brunch, I will have to do another one of those chain-of-people transmissions. :)

mjperson has talked me into running an Octopus War game, so there may be some delay in getting you your octopus. :)

I came to read Julius Caesar review (at IrelandGirls recommendation -- we are roommies). But now that I see your octopus, I wants it! Soooo cute! I applaud your mad skillz.

Uh oh. One of my traditional ways of getting something to nuclearpolymer is to send it through IrelandGirl. That could be dangerous now!

Ooh, cute. He would be well loved here. What I really want are these. Those would be a huge hit here with DinosaurGirl aka Sara. I am not convinced I have enough skill to make them though.

I don't have kids and still think your octopus is mega cute.

oh, how cute!

no need to send me one, I'm already reverse engineering it... looks like single crochet in the round...

Yup, it's single crochet. The pattern is on Lion Brand's web site and free, though they seem to have recently changed it so you have to register to get in.

I didn't think you crocheted. For some reason I thought you were a knitting only person. Perhaps I am confused.

I'm mostly a knitting-only person; I don't know anything beyond sc and dc, and I can't crochet without looking the way I can knit without looking. :) But this is all plain sc, so I could manage it.

Ok, who wouldn't want one of these? I'm going to have to find that pattern and see if I can make some for my girls to toss around. Especially if it's easy crochet. That I can almost handle. :)
