Jed's Manta Ray

This is Jed's manta ray, an eleventh anniversary present. It's really been eleven years since I first hit on him across a crowded room at one of Thida's parties? Wacky.

I made it in a cashmere merino silk, for a particularly lush feel, 'cause Jed likes soft things. Also, likes mantas. You should see him at the manta petting pool at the Monterey Bay Aquarium; he's just so darn cute. And so is this little guy:

Pattern available for free, courtesy Roman Sock. I skipped the whole mouth bit, because I like it better without, and used different eyes than she did, but basically, followed pattern. Actual crocheting, very little time -- two hours or so. Fiddly sewing of pipe cleaners and such took a bit longer.

Oh, how cute! I always loved the manta rays at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, too.
