Octavius the Octopus stands guard over a treasure chest full of – you guessed it – sparkling skeins of Vanna’s Glamour; with eight arms to knit and crochet with, it’s no wonder he has his own stash! He’s surrounded by a host of flora and fauna in dazzling shades, including a dreaming mermaid and a smack of crocheted jellyfish. If you look closely, you may spot some colorful marine contributions from LBYS staffers Claire, Darrin, Jen, and Will!
Here is a peek at this wonderful work of art as it progressed from an idea to the finished masterpiece… but don’t take our word for it – come visit it in person to see it in all of its spectacular detail!
