This feels like a bit of a cheat since it is so simple, but I did fold it entirely from memory! I'm super busy this week so I need to find small creative things I can cram in around the edges of my free time.
Day 19: Crochet Progress
A few more rows done on this project! I'm now officially farther along than before I restarted it.
Day 18: Starting Over
Busy day so not much progress but I did rip out my previous attempt and start over on this project. This style of crochet-in-the-round is so much easier for me. It was strangely therapeutic to unravel all that yarn.
Day 17: Poem

Day 11: Octo-buddy!
He's finished!! If nothing else comes from this project, I'm just ecstatic that it has driven me to complete this octopus. I love him so much!
Day 10: Octo-body
Octo-buddy's head is done and stuffed, and I started sewing on the tentacles. One more solid effort on this guy and he should be finished!
Day 9: Doodles
Didn't have much time for creative things today, but I did have enough time to doodle some cute sea creatures!
