I am finally ready to reveal the finished octopus! It did take me awhile to decide on which eyes and do all the finishing and stuffing. And then it sat on my couch for about a month until I could give it to my nephew! He was very serious at first when he saw it, but I think he likes playing with it...
After knitting up this thing, I was nervous that the felting wouldn't take, but oh did it ever! Two wash cycles in hot water with a towel for agitation did the trick. I washed it in a pillow case to keep it from stretching too much during agitation.
