I recently ran across several very cute mouse patterns. This one came with free instructions on the website, so the knitting choice was easy.
Pattern: Marisol Mouse (yarnigans.vox.com/library/post/marisol-mouse.html)
Needles: 4 size 3 DPNs
Yarn: leftover Lyon Brand wool-ease in dark gray and Encore in dusty rose
Start date: April 27, 2009
Finish date: April 29, 2009
This mouse is going to a dear, dear person who needs a great deal of cheering after a long string of bad luck. I hope it makes you laugh!!
And the knitting de-stressed me greatly too. There is nothing like dealing with the stress of administering standardized testing (for the third time this year!) during a school day. An evening knitting diversion is just the ticket for continued sanity.
