Oh don't give her ideas! She's already made a few cuddly Anomalocaris and trilobites, in fact she got so good at them she actually managed to sell a couple!
Between you and me, a few weeks ago I stuffed them into a box somewhere and can't find them right now. If I can dig them out I'll post a picture or two. And it'll also be appropriate to have them out on display next time she pops round.
Yeah, Ob, exactly. Adorable. How could anybody who belongs to a pro-cephalopod site not find other weird invertebrates cuddly? I want a knitted squilla! Maybe Sorseress will read this (she's a knitting monster, by-the-by).
Thanks, I'll pass it on. You never know she might take commissions as I know she still has the patterns. It might cost the price of materials first though, and most likely, I'll have to feed her an orange too.
