Baby Crochet – Squishy the Octopus and Beanies

Around the world people are making crocheted octopuses for babies – specifically those in the NICU – you can read more about it over here.

One of my friends asked me to make one for her (she is pregnant at the moment) and I jumped at trying my hand at one of these. The result — behold Squishy:

The octopus is straightforward to make, the tentacles are just a bit fiddly to do. Squishy is made from Stylecraft baby yarn (which I can highly recommend) and bits of blue and red yarn I had in The Stash.

The only other project I have been working on since I last blogged, is the charity baby beanies. I’ve finished quite a few of them — you can get about six beanies from a 100g ball of yarn. Now I just need to work in the ends and then send them off to the hospital.

This weekend I want to start on the Marvel fingerless gloves and do some work on the peacock shawl as well – I want to finish it by winter!
