This squirrel I saw at the park last month was playing with a stick that was snapped in half. Maybe he was divining for water? Getting ready to go cross country skiing? Was making a set of crutches for an injured comrade? Perhaps, but maybe he was using those sticks as knitting needles and was making something warm and cozy for the upcoming cold winter. If even an untrained squirrel can weave together an intricate nest out of nothing but sticks and leaves, then certainly they could rock a killer crochet project, right? We know what this week’s Saturday Squirrel’s friends and family will be getting for Christmas… and there’ll be no receipt to take it back either!
Have a great weekend everyone!
I could totally see that little guy whipping up a neck scarf!
He’ll just have to keep the other squirrels from stealing his yarn to make nests out of…
He totally looks like he’s ready for a cross country trek! The only thing he’s missing is a hiking pack. 😆
And one of those dorky looking knit hats…
Getting ready to ski down the slopes.
I’ll bet squirrels could ski down a bare tree in the winter….
It looks to me like he’s on a long hike and he’s just stopped to take in the view.
The view consists of one idiot and his camera blocking the nice sunset. His hike is ruined…
I think he’s building a cabin……..!
The Abe Lincoln of squirrels!
If he’s anything like my dogs who are VERY into chewing on wood (you should see what’s left of our coffee table!), he’s just picking his teeth.
I guess really big squirrel teeth would need a really big toothpick. Those acorn bits are so hard to remove with floss…
Is he knitting a pink hat?
