I'd like to do a ROAK(random act of kindness) for a member here. She loves octopus and would like a scarf that is made like an octopus tentacle.

HEre is exactly what is in her profile:

  • I wish that I had a scarf that looked like a tentacle.
  • Or maybe a hat that looked like an octopus sitting on my head. That would be awesome, but maybe impossible.

If anyone can do either of these and it not cost me a fortune, please pm me. Thanks,

Sherry

Sherry have you tried looking at the knitters at etsy.com? There might be someone who makes stuff similar to what you are looking for and can do a special order.

Just curious if you ever found someone to do the octopus/tentacle thingy...  Sounds intriguing and I'd love to see it if you ever get it made...  PM me as I'll never find this thread again...

It's an online yarn-craft community. Free to join. You can request the tentacle thingy in a forum such as Will Work for Yarn.

She also wished for a scarf-- I wish that I had a scarf that looked like a tentacle.

Subject: I think this is what she wants
