I’ve got a quick little freebie for you. We all know I’m shamefully easily amused. I have a suspicion one or two of you may suffer from this condition too. So I’ve written up some quick instructions for making your own squirm of tentacles. You can use more or less any yarn (each only takes a few yards), and you can bang several of them out in a night. They make excellent desk pets, they are highly entertaining when tucked around your house in unexpected places, and they are fearsome yarn guardians.
Make some of your own and see what they move you to do. All I ask is that you post a picture on ravelry if you find yourself inspired.
