Folks,

When I was a wee lad, my mom made me a plush moray eel and a plush torpedo ray. They were lovely, resplendent in early-70's textile patterns, and I keep them to this day.

With all due respect and love for my mother, however, someone's eclipsed her achievement:

25-Foot Long Crochet Giant Squid

That's the work of Ladylinoleum, who hails from Los Angeles.

Erich, go find this mad crocheting genius at once.

Cheers,
Clem
