Not just Socktopus, Socktopi!

This is so cool! There are already Socktopi being made, with pictures on Ravelry, and the response to the pattern has been so awesome!
So, there have been a couple additions to the Socktopus family in our home already.
A slightly smaller orange Socktopus, commissioned by my aunt for a friend's baby.I also just finished a Giganto-Socktopus! Shown with original Socktopus for visual comparison.
Same pattern with size 11 needles and bulky yarn.
Hooray! Thanks to everyone for the encouraging and sweet comments!

Hi there!

You just got yourself a new fan! You write good and I love your work. I make patterns myself and knit mostly in the winter time (summer time is to hot to knit here in the Netherlands). I make poncho's, scarfs and mittens, but I am sure going to try and make your socktopus. They are so cute.

Love,
Sanne

Thank you so much for this pattern! I just finished making mine last night! I had never used double point needles before and had no experience with increasing and decreasing but I was able to pull it off with your super clear and helpful instructions! I can't wait to make more socktopi as birthday presents for all of my friends!
Thanks again,
Sara
