Freeform Week 2

Here is my freeform-crochet-along piece after two weeks of daily instructions have been followed — I haven’t worked today’s yet! I’m pretty ridiculously pleased with it. I keep threatening that I’m going to hang it on the wall when I’m done, and Pat keeps looking concerned. If you have a Ravelry account, I highly recommend that you go to the pattern page to check out other people’s interpretations of the instructions — it’s really remarkable how different each piece is!

I know that I promised I would regale you with tales of my two recent bad-knitting-decisions, but I only have a photo of one of them so far:

What you are looking at, my friends, is tentacles. Eight tentacles, to be exact. What makes knitting this octopus such a profoundly bad idea is that I have exactly two more days in which to finish the whole damn thing, because I want to finish it and get it in the mail before I leave for spring break. Of course, ideally I’ll also finish grading all my students’ final exams before then, too. So, you know, hopefully in two days you will be seeing completed octopus pictures here. Either that or I will have had a nervous breakdown. See you on the flipside!

  1. There’s something about the crazy colors and organic weird shapes of that crochet project that is just so satisfying. It makes me wish that a) I knew how to crochet and b) I had been doing this along with the rest of the Internet-crocheting world.

    ALSO that octopus has been #1 in my queue for YEARS and a friend and I even split a couple of skeins of yarn to make reversed-color versions of them. I think this is a sign that we should actually do them.

  2. I love how your crochet piece is coming out! It looks like a Rube Goldberg child’s toy! Which means you should totally hang it on the wall.

    Also that octopus is totally going to kick ass. I’ll be on the edge of my seat to see what the next 2 days hold!
