Deadly Knitshade has put up some amazing photos of "Plarchie," a freakishly awesome 8 metre giant knitted squid, made out of orange (Sainsbury) plastic grocery bags. The squid is cool enough (is it weird that I want to buy it?), but the setting is also pretty much perfect since the photos were all taken at London's Natural History Museum, where Plarchie's original source of inspiration lives. Plus, I've got to say that I love the one where Plarchie is cozying up with Charles Darwin. Looks like they're made for each other. Deadly Knitshade has a book, too!
