Now that we’ve all settled ourselves from our Halloween-induced sugar highs, it is time to turn our thoughts to that most delicious of holidays, Thanksgiving. As MentalFloss.com states, “Since [William] Bradford wrote of how the colonists had hunted wild turkeys during the autumn of 1621 and since turkey is a uniquely American (and scrumptious) bird, it gained traction as the Thanksgiving meal of choice for Americans after Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.” So I think it only fitting that we pay crocheted homage to a creature that has brought so many of us such aromatic and savory memories – I give you…the Turkey!
