Something you may want to know,
1. sheep yarn (for knitting needle NO 6). My habit is using no. 3 knitting needle for making a toy.
2. DPN method
4. M3: make 3 in same stitch.(kfb at first, then don't drop the loop, keep knit it once. then you get 3 stitches.)
These little octopus remind me of 章魚燒(takoyaki), beer, summer. :)
