Pots, Octopuses, and Depressing Stockings.

Great News! I have taken up gardening.

After a bout of rather severe depression, I figured a bit of green might help me feel better.

I even knit a little cuff for it!

I must say, it is quite nice. A little something to get excited about, to watch and wait.

The Cat grass and Basil both have sprouted!

On the other hand, I have been knitting! Most recently, I have been working on Octopuses (according to my mother, this is the correct plural).
Little guy even has a hat
He is pretty much the large ball from my Knit Cthulhu pattern, with the same crotchet tentacles, just at the bottom. I don't really remember the hat pattern, but I made a people-sized hat from Felix Cucumber on Ravelry and I used the same principles.

I'm working on a second iteration, with i-chord tentacles around pipe cleaners. I'm not sure which I like better.
Needs a face

On a more depressing note, I've been working on these lovely thigh-high stockings. I even got one done! However, the second-sock syndrome could not be greater on this one...
Yup, the's a broken needle.

So I switched to little projects for the time being.
