I've mentioned a few times that among my chores I've been making squid. I was not talking about an awesome new calamari recipe - I was talking about these:
A fellow yarn crafter started a Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef here in Hawaii. I sadly had to miss out on being part of her show at Mark's Garage earlier this year, but I did get lucky enough to help out with the latest show happening tomorrow at Waikiki Aquarium's Family Night: Meet the Molluscs. They/we are giving away crocheted squids for the event. I got to make some squid.
They aren't hard to make, though I really admire the crafter for building her own pattern for them. I made about eleven squid in various colors mostly using baby yarn because I had some lying around.
Now that I've been doing nothing but crocheting squid I am quite frankly sick of crochet. I need my knitting needles. I don't think I'll want to crochet for a long time. But the squid are cute. I hope the aquarium kids think they're fun.
