Baby toy

Like always, it’s been a while since the last update, which doesn’t mean that I have been quiet. I’m always doing or thinking of a new project, when I’m not, I remind myself how good I feel when I do have one or I’m making one. It doesn’t matter how much time I’ve got, as long as I choose the right project for the amount of time I’d like to spend on doing it (without getting frustrated or too anxious, just the right balance).

This time was a request from a friend who was heavily pregnant and wanted a toy for her baby: an amigurumi octopus!

It was quite easy and I liked the way it came out. The biggest challenge was to make the eyes and the little star in the head (also a mouth that didn’t turn out good so I gave up). I still have a long way to go practicing eyes, little ‘accesories’ and mouths when the crochet pattern is quite ‘open’. In any case, I liked the idea, loved that she actually requested it, and her now 5 months old baby likes it!
