MOM Monday

The start of another new month means the completion of another project for the MOM club. This month's project was my favorite one yet, and I think it's my mom's favorite, too.
I used the pattern "Finsbury Squirrel with Acorn Basket" by Amanda Berry (aka Fluff and Fuzz). I have several of her patterns in my collection but this is the first one that I've made. With the exception of the body, I knitted all of the pieces in the round which helped minimize the making up at the end. I made the basket with DK weight cotton held double, but I wasn't happy with it so I decided that Finsbury could just hold onto his acorn. Here's a picture of Finsbury, all ready to be delivered:

"I'm going to hold onto this acorn until it's ripe!"


  1. Don't you just love her patterns? I've got several too, minus the weaving in part, they are awesome! Cute finished product, Kate.
