So, the source of this whole Mighty Octopus Army is the first project in my Concept Development class. The project is based on the act of repetition, of making multiples, and doing the same simple task, every single day. Twice a day, really.
100 things in 50 days.
Crochet is already quite repetitive, and making octopuses is both simple and enjoyable. The idea of making 100 crocheted octopuses intrigued me, and while it is actually more time consuming than the project called for, I couldn’t possible pass up the idea.
So far I have mostly stuck with woollen yarn, but am looking forward to making octopuses out of wire, cassette tape, stretchy cord, and things not thought of yet.
