A neighbor and dear friend of mine is expecting the imminent arrival of her fourth child and first boy.  Something like that is worthy of a pretty special gift, don't you think?

So, I whipped up this little number:

It was my first time doing crochet applique, but I found a bunch of free patterns for different appliques thanks to my good friend google.com.  Anyway, after weighing the pros and cons of a bunch of them, I decided to have a go at this octopus from Moogly.  The pattern as written was the wrong size for my sweater (as in, if I would have made it to scale, it would have been disproportionately big and would have made everything look funny) so, I modified it to make it smaller, and I'm really quite happy with how it turned out.

Honestly, I know I made this and all, and I don't want to sound too too braggy, but it's cute right?  I love it.  So freaking adorable.

Here's one more shot, just 'cuz I love how it turned out so much.

Something tells me I'm going to have to try these again.
