Octoscarf knitalong:

So, since it's cold and winter-y here, I just finished the super-awesome-cardigan-of-green!, and I have lots and lots (and lots!) of yarn, I've decided I want to knit a scarf. And because it's ever so much fun, I've decided to challenge you all to knit or crochet a scarf too!
But not just any scarf.
A *cue fanfare* OCTOSCARF.

What is an octoscarf?
An octoscarf is a scarf inspired by the Majestic Octopus (watch around the 2 minute mark). It could be knit with a picture of an octopus. It could have a pattern that reminds you of those cool suction-cups. It could involve elaborate mathematical patterns based on the number 8. It could be made from yarn that reminds you of an octopus. It could..., well, you get the idea.

What is a Knit-along?
A knit-along is an event were a bunch of people get together to knit to a common end. Sometimes for charities, sometimes just to all be working on the same project - or type of project. They're a spiffy way to meet other fiber-crafty people, find inspiration for projects, and be challenged to do more.


    * One entry per player
    * Entries must be knit or crochet. You may use items such as buttons, beads, and eyes as they are normally used with these crafts.
    * Entry must be recognizably a scarf - and usable as one! It can be sized for either an adult or a child.
    * Entry must be your own work.
    * Entries must be posted to the Entry Thread.
    * Entry post format (entries must include all this information):

-Your Pirate Name and Ocean for prize delivery

-Pattern information (link if it's available online, tell us where you found it otherwise.) If you improvised based on an existing pattern or made up your own, tell us that!

-Links to three pictures that include a piece of paper with your pirate name and ocean:

    * Casting on: The project just after it's started
    * In Progress: The project about halfway done
    * Finished: The finished project. (You may include this as an image in your post so long as it is no larger than 600 px x 600 px)

Additionally, if possible include an "action" shot of your scarf being modeled by a willing victim, long-suffering pet, or beloved stuffed hippopotamus.

-Prize preference order and color clarification (if needed.)

If it is unclear, you will also want to explain just how your scarf was inspired by the Majestic Octopus.

Prize Packs:

    * Octoscarf: An octopus familiar based on the color of your scarf (standard options).
    * Tools of the Trade: Spinning wheel, dyer, upholstered chair, and "Clotho" rumble dummy action figure. Dyer and chair colors based on the color of your scarf. (Oooh, and a Clotho egg!)
    * The Herd: Two sheep, one dog, and a "Shepherdess" or "Sheepherder" swordfighting dummy (depending on ocean). Colors loosely determined by the color of your scarf.

Please indicate your prize preference order and the color of your scarf if it is unclear. If you list a non-standard color such as black or sea-green, we will

Additionally each winner will receive an appropriately (1st/2nd/3rd) inscribed ribbon trinket.

Participants' Choice: Each player who participates in the Knit-Along will have one week after it is finished to submit a vote for their favorite entry. The overall favorite entry (up to a two-way tie) will receive an inscribed ribbon trinket based on their scarf colors: "Participants' Choice: Octoscarf Knit-Along."
Participants' Choice voting should be posted in thisthread at the close of the event using the following format:
Vote: Pirate-name. Yes, you can vote for your own entry. No, you can't be anonymous.
