squid are the new monkeys





This is Squidworth, the oldest of the group. Taking those glorious tentacles into consideration, he's a whopping 16" long, and only 3" at the widest part of his squiddy body.

He's knit from 100% merino wool, hand-dyed a light pinkish shade.














And this is Blooie, who is less an identifiable species of cephalopod and more just ... a cute little guy who happens to have tentacles.

He's knit of the softest, squishiest 100% baby alpaca imaginable, and measures 7.5" long [including tentacles] and 3.5" high. More pictures of him here.

















Aaaaaaaaand Li'l Greenie. I admit, I love this guy. I think he's the cutest thing ever, even if the name I gave him means I get "The Jean Genie" stuck in my head twelve times a day. But it's ok! It's Bowie. There are worse songs to have stuck in one's head.

But back to Greenie. He's knit from hand-dyed 100% merino, in the same colorway from the algae handwarmers, and measures in at a truly little 4.5" long [inlcuding his wee tentacles] and 2.5" (!) wide.













A GROUP SHOT!

When not taunting their neighbor TRex, the cephalopods like posing for pictures.

I WANT A SQUID. I WANT TO SQUISH IT AND WAVE IT AROUND AND DRAG IT BY IT'S TENTACLE AND TAKE IT WITH ME EVERYWHERE.

*makes grabby hands at Squidworth*
AWWW YAY!

Slod just decided, before seeing your comment, that Squidworth was the Carson of the group.

COINCIDENCE!??
NOT COINCIDENCE. IT'S THE SECRET MIND POWERS.

He even has a pointy, spikey head kind of like Carson's hair! DAWWWW...

The weird thing, and I don't think slod knows this, is that that pink yarn? Is leftover from this.


Weirder by the second.
That...is fairly creepy awesome.
MAKING A SQUID OF CARSON'S LEFTOVER SKIN? YES, I WOULD CALL THAT CREEPY. YES.
I AM IN LOVE NOW KTHXBAI. WANT TO ORDER SQUID PRONTO.
HEE! I'm going to post two more tomorrow, then you can tell me what kind you want, and IT'LL BE YOURS ♥
CEPHALOPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDD!
And now you know what my "research" was all about the other day :)
Oh sweet Jesus. How much is Squidworth?
Hee! Go Squidworth!

Ahh ... ten bucks? He can be in a box to you tomorrow morning, if you want.
10... dollars...? *balks* But he's totally worth it! I shall have to confer with my sister about this--we're pretty poor (damn that lack of allowance!). But yeah, we'll probably buy 'im. :x
