Where the Magic Happens

Last week at the day job took a lot out of me. So, when I got home, I didn't do much more than eat dinner, turn on the TV, and tune out. I didn't touch the octopus hat.

But then things changed over the weekend, and I was able to get a bit done Saturday night. (I'm writing this on Sunday.)

Last week, I had finished the main portion of the hat: 

Saturday night, I started connecting the outer tentacles to the inner suckers. It is done in such a way that the resulting "legs" curl: 

One and a half done. Six and a half more to go.

    1. Yeah, I got slammed at work. But I'm fortunate to be employed. It'll get done eventually.
