amigurumis anyone?

Octi, as my son named him, his head is about an inch and a half across
I've been crocheting small things for some time, so the whole idea of amigurumis is not entirely new, but some of the designs people come up with are just adorable.... soooooo... I had some yarn left over from a baby blanket and some hats I had done for a charity project and I decided to try my hand a few little friends:

my son thought Octi needed a friend... so here's Mr. Squid ... yeah, yeah, I know the eyes should be opposite... I plead artistic license!
this little fellow stands about six inches tall (not including ears)
