Plucky the Turkey comes out to play
Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

He went on vacation around September
And didn’t come back till late late December

He was hiding from Humans during this time
Avoiding all grocery stores with people shouting, “Mine!”

Plucky might be delicious but no one will ever know
When it’s near that time on the calender he will just pack and go!



Pattern for Turkey: From the shoulders down the pattern is exactly like the Penguin in Jean Greenhowe’s design. From the neck up, I was knitting and just going with the flow. Unfortunately I didn’t record my work and I probably won’t be able to recreate the exact same head the next time I do it :(. *sigh*

    Very sweet! I had checked in and noticed that you had taken a break. Welcome back! Your little creations are always so lovely…so cute!

    • Thank you for checking in! I was going through a career change and it was quite stressful at that time, but things should be more stable now :) Thank you for your support and love :)

    So cute!!!! I really like his little button.

  3. How adorable and how sensible of him to take some off. Perhaps this year you could send him to Australia with us. He will be safe here as we don’t have Thankyou Day and he could play with all the Aussie amigurumis. Welcome back

  4. Look at him! He’s sooooooo cute! How can anyone want to eat him??! =D
