Vampire Squid Blanket Pattern

I’m an Oceanographer, and although I don’t study squid, I do love them very much. The vampire squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis) is one of my favorite sea creatures.

Very Green Socks finished!

I'm posting a little later than usual, but I got my socks finished! They do still need to be washed, but at least all the knitting and weaving in ends is done. I really like the way these turned out. The silver toes are a little silly but since nobody will ever see them but... Continue Reading →
