Hi, here's a picture of some knitted toys which Mark sent me some time ago: what's good is that among them is the squirrel which I remember cherishing because of its chocolate colour and its fine upright tail (its tip was fastened to the back of the head to keep it up); unlike this one here, it wasn't sewed to the back, and I could slide my hand around it and hold the squirrel like a handle.
So probably this isn't mine here; I have half a mind that Mum had the pattern and knitted it at home in France using that. I'm not sure I'm photographed somewhere with it. I'll have to be on the lookout just in case!
Who knitted these? When were they made?
August 22: Cath's visit at home has answered the above questions: she was the one who knitted the four toys in the pictures, and in 1962, during her stay in England with us. She is sure, because she remembers the patterns, which were written in English. So yes, my pet squirrel is among those: but there are two, so it's difficult to say which it was.
Lookie! Somewhere at mum's place, Noel has managed to find the pattern for the squirrel!
