Oceanic Desk Decorations

Like most offices, Lion Brand’s New York offices are filled with beautifully decorated desks. From personal pictures to swatches of new yarns, each person finds a way to decorate his or her desk in a beautiful and charming way. I decided that my desk needed to have an underwater theme, so I have been crafting sea creatures during my lunch breaks and when the internet has been slow. Meet my friendly desk creatures, Anglie the Anglerfish and Archibald the Octopus.

The pattern for my anglerfish came from Hansi Singh’s Amigurumi Knits. I used four different shades of Vanna’s Choice to add a personal touch. Everyone who visits my desk loves to ask questions about her.

Little Archibald was made from Vanna’s Choice Baby in Aqua using our popular Amigurumi Octopus pattern. He makes a friendly and adorable addition to my desk.

I’m always looking for more sea creatures to add to my desk, so feel free to suggest a knit or crochet pattern to me!
