Opie the Mini-Octopus

Who doesn’t need a squishy, tentacled companion? Or better yet, a whole family of cephalopod friends?  

Opie is the smallest member of the group, and a great place to start your creature-knitting career.

Opie’s best features include his sleepy eyes and wonderfully squishable body. His design is inspired by the real thing (octopus vulgaris in particular), but minus the creepy parrot-like beak.  Opie is 15 inches / 38 cm in length, worked in the round with intarsia tentacles worked flat.

All-inclusive hand-spun kits are in the shop for $55.

Hassonite by Corrina Ferguson

A gorgeous study in color and texture, Hassonite is a top-down heart-shaped shawl worked in two coordinating shades of hand-painted Helix (100% merino, 2-ply, light DK weight).

Hassonite begins with an easy-to-memorize lace pattern worked in one color. Next, a slip-stitch pattern worked in both hues, but only one at a time. The final lace pattern is edged with a simple crochet bind-off for an extra bit of lacy goodness.  View the kits in the shop.
