Well, I found my second project from there as well. It is a cute as little jellyfish! You can find the pattern here: http://amigurumipatterns.blogspot.com/2007/10/little-octopus-ornament-to-sweeten-up.htmlHere is my finished project:
I am still unable to find any safety eyes here in Australia, so it looks like I am going to have to resort to buying in from overseas. If I find a good one I will let you know.
In the meantime, I made this little guy without a face – and he is still really cute, even without eyes! He would look great hanging from a car revision mirror, or if I made one with finer yarn and a smaller hook, a keychain!
