Week 48: If you give a moose a muffin.....

He'll make a giant freakin' mess. Squeaker actually has muffin in his double chin, hair, and ears.
He thoroughly enjoyed himself however. I have to defend myself a little here, since half the picture of late are of Squeaker eating muffins. They are healthy muffins at least. These are kale and carrot. C'mon. Delicious and nutritious! And he eats them like they are going out of style.

Look at those antlers! This hat is so perfectly winter-y.  I am calling it a moose, but it could probably pass as a reindeer too. 

 I was really pleased by how well the antlers stood up on their own. I did put in a tiny bit of stuffing and stitched them really firmly to the hat to help keep them standing upright. The antlers do "wave" a bit when Squeaks is walking around, but it only adds to the adorability.   This hat is for a co-worker. Her daughter is about 2 months younger than Squeaker, but outweighs him by a solid 5 pounds. They call her their baby moose, which is what gave me the idea for this hat! 
Awww. Makes you melt a little. 
Take care,
