Spent a very nice weekend in Long Branch with Patty and Doug. I attempted to make another knitted toy for them, along the lines of Larry the Lobster from a couple of years ago. I ended up with a pastel octopus. Patty loved it, of course, but I don’t. I made a few mods on the pattern to make it faster, and I now see I used all the wrong colors. Saturated next time, not some lame-o neutral. Here he is, though, with his new pal Larry.
