A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Pattern: Nuts About Squirrels by Debbie Radtke
Yarn: Cascade 220 and Mustachio
Needles: US 10.5 and 11 Addi Turbos
Notes: This guy was a lot fussier to knit than the hedgehog. It has more pieces and involves more stitching together as well as intarsia. But overall it's still very quick to knit and has some very clever shaping. The pink reminded me of Sherlock, the squirrel from The Magic Garden, which you would only know if, like me, you grew up in the New York Tri-State area in the 70s.
