001 - Finger knitted Octopus
Entry deadline: Wednesday 15th April
If you don’t have any wool, you could always repurpose a Christmas Jumper – please ask the owner’s permission before you unravel it. Alternatively, you could use string, cord, t-shirt yarn.
There is whole world of finger knitting out there – I had no idea until I looked.
You can use whatever technique you prefer but if you search the internet for

“Red Ted Art - 2 finger finger knitting”
If you have any yarn left over, try making the longest length of finger knitting you can.
