Am I Gurumi?

Happy Saturday! Since I think she does not read this, I am going to post Kiwi's birthday present here.

kiwis octopus

This is the octopus from Amigurumi Knits.

He's not very big. Here's Piewacket for scale:

Pie octopus

He really enjoyed helping knit this one. Especially the part with the pipe cleaners.

I loved learning how to fake graft on this project. It's one of those magical things like mattress stitch where you KNOW you seamed it, but even you cannot see where. So cool.

I think I'm going to make myself one of these and wear him with my steampunk pirate outfit (since I'm not an airship pirate, but more of a submarine pirate). Like, instead of a parrot, have an octopus.

And finally, here is a picture of just Pie. He looks so silly when he's enjoying his sunbeam.
