Something Strange

Gripping Tentacle 
Over the weekend I made a tentacle.  Just one for now, but there will be more.

When I started making the Palpitations hearts earlier this year, I realized that most of my sock yarn leftovers were not exactly "heart" colors.  One thing I noticed is that I have lots of greens and blue greens in my leftovers bag.  Then I remembered the Gripping pattern.  It's a free pattern and let's face it, the look on your teenage boy's face when he asks you what you're knitting and you answer, "A Tentacle" is priceless.

This one is made following the directions exactly but when I stuffed it at the end, I put a magnet in the very bottom of it.  I don't know if I'll add magnets to all my tentacles or not, but some of them will definitely get magnets.  The directions give variations for longer or shorter or thinner or fatter tentacles.  I think a good variety of shapes and sizes is the way to go here.
