Black Squirrel

I was sitting knitting of course when I spied this strange looking creature on our deck. Checking out our bird feeder was a black squirrel, really coal black. Actually very pretty. We looked him up and they are fairly rare, 1 in 10,000 grey squirrels is a black one. Well there are quite a few around here on the Island so those stats for here don’t work. The squirrels out on the Assateague Island are an endangered breed of grey squirrel. Their coats are a lovely chinchilla grey, and they are large. Hmmmm. Wonder if you can spin that fiber?
