I just read Tideland, and watched the movie. In both, there's a part when the protagonist frees a talking squirrel from being stuffed and sewn. Somehow, that translated into me really wanting a hat with squirrels on it. It's a damn shame I didn't realize I was using size 6 needles on a size 8 sorta project until I was completely finished and went to put away the needles.
This was my first attempt at knitting anything from a graph into the round, and I don't think it turned out too badly. But, unfortunately, since my gauge was off (thanx for not being numbered Addi-turbos!) he's being sent away to the ol' Etsy shop to make some other squirrel enthusiast smile.
If you haven't seen or read Tideland, here's a quick overview:
And if you haven't checked out the shop yet:
