Bag Buster

The octopus has been my go-to project for a while now. (My only project, actually.) But it's gotten so big, it doesn't fit into my project bag real well any longer: 

Although, tentacles coming out of a TARDIS seems rather fitting, don't you think? 

*Insert joke about being bigger on the inside here*

It's still not quite done: 

The curled tentacles are finished. The one on the right is half done. And then there are the three remaining.

Decent progress. It's getting there.

  1. From what I've read about octopuses, they hate being confined and will try to ooze out of their tank one way or another, so I am not surprised.

  2. That's so cute! The red is very pretty. So is the fact it's escaping the TARDIS!

  3. It really does look cool coming out of the Tardis.

    2. Are you into all the times wimpy stuff? The current season is really weird….

    3. I'm hoping it'll come together at the end, but for the moment I'm scratching my head.

  6. This looks really good. I love how it looks like it's crawling out of your bag.

  7. That one is so cool looking. It might be my favorite of the three. I just love that red.

  8. I will surprise you, given my love of SF: I have watched the grand total of two Dr. Who episodes. I know people who love it so and I wasn't able to get into it. So I had to look up the tentacled species in that series. Shame on me, I guess!

    1. I've never seen the original series. I only got into it in 2005 when it was rebooted. Worth the watch, if you can stream it someplace.

      There are no tentacled creatures... Well, I wasn't thinking of a creature from Doctor Who when I made the comparison. Just that my crochet project was bigger than the bag.

    2. So you’re not familiar with the Ood?

    3. I amended that I wasn't thinking of a tentacled creature when I took the picture. Because once I said it, I realized I wasn't really taking the time to think about it.

  9. Those are realistic ( minus the color).
    missing out on Dr. Who is a sad loss of culture.

    1. I think it's an appropriate take-along yarn project bag.
