Here's Claude!

 Introducing Claude the Octopus!!  He is my buddy.  I made him.  I even had to unravel a little bit of something else I made in order to complete him... he is forever grateful for this, and the donor doily is now his security blanket.  It goes everywhere with him!  Here he is, for once *not* caught in a compromising position... just cuddling his doily.

Claude was made from a pattern of the same name (Claude the Octopus) from Simply Crochet Magazine.  I ordered his eyes from Amazon, his topside is yarn from the pound shop, and his underside and edges (and suckers!) are scraps from my stash... and I'm pretty proud of myself for using them up!

This post is part of Blogtober 2016.  To participate, check out the original post.

I love Claude! Though I still say he looks a little like an Ood :-)

Claude says he knows nothing of this Ood but he assumes that they are buff and suave and intelligent, with just a hint of the renegade about them. ;)
