I have started a new knitting project…..I know, I know, I have plenty to work on without starting something new.  But I absolutely couldn’t resist this pattern: Hansi Singh’s Octopus

I am making Octopussy, my ode to one of my favorite James Bond flicks of all time out of Cascade 220 Heathered. In a darker red and dark tan color. She is modeled after a Red Octopus which can be found here in the Pacific Northwest.

This pattern really appealed to me. I am a certified SCUBA diver and have some experience diving here in the Puget Sound. Not nearly as much as I would like, and I haven’t ever been fortunate enough to see one of these little guys in the wild. I will keep my eyes peeled for them.

I am currently working on 6 out of the eight tentacles, and will finish the tentacle assembly before beginning work on the mantle and head. Maybe by the time my dive buddy hubbie’s regulator is back from repair I will have a little dive mascot 🙂

Happy Knittin and Diving 🙂

Pictures of Octopussy coming soon!
