In any event, to make up for my absence and to hopefully, start this new year off on the right foot, here's a new pattern for you. I had a young gal contact me on Ravelry and ask for a squirrel. Well, she didn't exactly ask for it, but she told me how much she was hoping I'd do one. She's only 13 and is quite the knitter. I was trying to come up with something new and decided to give it a whirl! So Charlotte, if you're reading this, here's your squirrel:
My good pal, Tunie, in Australia, test knitted the pattern so I think it should be fine. I've included a chart with it as well. The links to the patterns are in the sidebar under the updated patterns.
