what is the opposite of an octopus?

A flamingo, of course!

This baby flamingo has just hatched. He is still lacking feathers and is having some trouble with balance, but nothing out of the ordinary for a newborn.

In the meantime, the octopus has finally got all its legs and is having a swim at the deep end of the blocking pool.

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

    • I let it soak in a bowl of warm water for about an hour, and after that I took a tall glass, put the octopus body (it’s not stuffed yet) on top of it and spread the legs around the glass. It worked quite nicely!
