I made a little mouse

Cute isn't she?

I signed up to take part in Tracy's Send a little love swap & was partnered up with Joy

If you click on the link you will see what else I sent to Joy.

The mouse pattern came from Say!Little hen & I thought it was a lovely little make to send.

I used Rowan handknit cotton & some Liberty fabric for the heart & ears. 

I'm going to make another one as a baby gift along with a crochet blanket for my ex sister in law who is having her first baby this year.

Unfortunately as she is an ex I wont be an aunt but as she is having a pink one & I really like her I will be making something nice & buying something too!

I might be brave & try a ripple blanket!

I haven't uploaded photos of the gifts Joy sent to me yet but they don't contain a photo of the chocolate lollipop she sent me. I was a greedy old trout & popped it in my mouth as I unwrapped my gifts!!

  4. What a cute mouse, I'm glad you enjoyed the swap, I have been know to take a pic of the empty box that the chocolate comes in as it's normally eaten whilst unwrapping the rest of the gifts!!! Go for it with the ripple blanket, Attic 24's pattern is easy to follow and very addictive xx

  5. Super cute mouse. What a lovely swap gift. I bet the chocolate lolly was delicious - it wouldn't have lasted long with me either.

  6. What a lovely little knitting project. Of course you can be an aunt. When I was growing up I had a zillion aunts, real ones, neighbours, church members, the list was endless. It's lovely you've remained friends. Xx

  7. Fabulous mouse, it reminds me of a Clanger a little. Oh how I love the Clangers. A chocolate lollipop would have been eaten straight away here too. CJ xx

  10. Very cute and clever too. Once you get started on a ripple, it is quite therapeutic to do. It took me ages to start one, but then I was on a roll. Baby steps will get you there. Take care.

  20. Hello Jo,

  21. Yes, that is a cute little mouse.

    All the best Jan

  22. The mouse is so cute! Sarah has some really adorable patterns. I do the same thing with any treats that come in with a pressie, and realize too late ooops! should've photographed that first. Empty wrappers don't quite cut it ;) It's nice that you are still in contact with your X-SIL. I now have 2, but have lost contact with both (sadly because I really liked both of them!). Sometimes family connections just get too weird.

  23. Lovely mouse - I'm sure your ex-SIL will love it (and a blanket). It's good that you keep in touch with your ex-SIL. What's in a name anyway? - Maybe you could be an honorary aunt! xx

  28. I always think tiny knitted whimsies are such lovely knits and equally lovely to receive, I love the fabric heart and ears.
