I figured it was about time to post pictures of the finished octopus hat since I actually finished it about two weeks ago. I apparent had a brain fart when decreasing the top of the hat because it ended up way pointer than I wanted it to. Fortunately, I was able to turn this around by folding the top down and securing it with a button (one of the many new buttons I recently obtained). The button I picked fits the hat perfectly and I am kind of glad I goofed up, because I quite like the look of it.
I am currently working on two projects. One is a stuffed Kraken (progress shown below). The other is another Finn the Human, which I will be slowly making during my 15 minute breaks at work. Speaking of work, my first two weeks have been good and I have found that I still have a decent amount of time for knitting in the evenings, which is very nice!
I'm starting my new "real world" job this next Monday. This has positives and negatives to it:
Positive: More money = more yarn.
Negative: Less time to actually knit
So, there may be a decrease in the number of projects finished per month now. :(
Speaking of projects, I am currently super into octopi! I keep making little stuffed octopi...
And am finishing up my intarsia octopus hat (I am not looking forward to sewing in all the loose ends O.o). After that I have plans to make a stuffed Narwhal, and then perhaps a Kraken from the same book I got the stuffed octopus pattern from. Stay tuned!
