Knitting, outdoors

Meet Tucker

This is Tucker. He is my new woodland buddy. He makes me smile. And laugh. A lot!


As you can see, he’s an adorable and thoroughly cheeky little squirrel with the sleekest fur and bushiest tail imaginable.


For a while now, I’ve been wondering who has been taking bites out of my decorative corn (left over from Fall)… Turns out it’s Tucker! (And I think we can all tell which flavor he likes best!)

Tucker likes to run up onto the back deck, under the kitchen window and grab a mouthful of dried corn kernels. Then he runs back across the deck, climbs up onto the railing, and perches there to enjoy his snack!

I happened to see him through the kitchen window, doing this over and over early one morning as I was making coffee. Now we meet up for coffee & corn breaks most early mornings and late afternoons.

I haven’t yet figured out whether he’s told all his friends & relations about the free handouts on my back deck, or whether he’s keeping it all to himself… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a quick peak at what’s currently on my needles…


Another baby blanket. This one is a sample in a smaller size as I would like to offer a couple of different size options in the pattern.


And this is a new pattern I’m working on for a Spring/Summer weight shawl!

What’s been making you smile/laugh lately? And what’s on your needles/hooks/wheel/loom? I’d love to hear all about it!

Happy Knitting!

  1. I LOL’d and choked on my spit after watching the trailer to the upcoming Cobra Kai series that was featured on someone’s blog post today. The squirrels in our neighborhood are aggressive; when we had first moved in, they peed on my daughter from the tree in our backyard.

  2. He is adorable. Living in a suburb on the outskirts of a huge city, we have lots of birds and such but no squirrels. They are mainly in the garden parks in the city. So seeing yours is to cute. I guess he is keeping his secret for now. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love the yellow knitting, it is extremely cheerful.
    Fall is starting here, so I have socks on my needles. ๐Ÿ™‚ No surprise there.
    Enjoy Spring and your little buddy. ๐Ÿ™‚
