My newest creation... in just a little over a day I made this little guy. I wanted to use this beautiful shade of blue for some project, and the octopus just seemed fitting. My husband, D, is requesting a 'Nanerpus (as in from those really funny Denny's breakfast commercials), and while I think that my main skill is to follow other people's directions, maybe just a little yellow yarn and some creative adjustments could make his dreams come true.
Side note: this pattern comes from the adorable Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet by Ana Paula Rimoli. It's really a great collection, with a "How To" beginning and a wide variety of seriously cute patterns.
