When I was a child I knit a squirrel. The pattern came from a Patons pattern book from the UK, published in the 1960s (though that may have been a reprint from an earlier version). The pattern was very cute — you used a very loopy stitch to create the tail.
The Brooklyn General Store is holding a contest — to create a handmade squirrel. Follow this link on their blog for all the details. There are prizes to be had! You have til the middle of May to get your entries in.
I wonder if I have time to knit another squirrel?
Not right now — I’m busy getting ready to head to St. Louis tomorrow for the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling. I’ll be back Sunday night — so no blog post til Monday.
Lucy is resting up for the big party she is planning in my absence.
Have a great weekend and see you Monday!
