Here's what I made for my son's girlfriend for Christmas.
"Well, that's real nice, but what the heck is it?"
you may well ask.
Why, it's a crocheted cuttlefish, of course!
"That's a weird thing to make, much less give as a gift,"
True - it is weird - a weird, weird sea mollusk,
which also happens to be her favorite sea creature.
She wants to go back to school to become a marine biologist.

It was the least I could do, after she brought me this sea horse (my favorite sea creature)
from the recent trip she and my daughter made to the New England Aquarium.
