This is my first post here... but I've been reading and drooling over the talent on this forum for a while. It's inspired me to actually start knitting correctly and take on bigger projects. I learned as a senior in high school (4 years ago now... wow.) and the person that taught me, taught me backwards. A woman at work told me about SnB and I went out and bought both. After making scarves for 4 years I decided to make mitts, which were tedious and boring, but fulfilling. Enough of that. Here's what I made. I wanted something small and fun, but I needed to learn more basics: increases, decreases, color stripes, seaming, i cord, etc. I decided to make a mouse for me, not for any cat. It's my first "real" project, don't laugh too hard.  Grin


The color is a little off. He's light grey with a white stripe, white eyes, and a white nose. I had a little trouble attaching the ears evenly, so the next time I make one, I'll work on that. Any critism is welcome, as I need all the help I can get. Smiley

He is so cute. I made one for a friend's cat but was too lazy to make it look like a mouse (as if the cat notices, right?) so it's just an oval-shaped thing. Nice job!

Thanks! I don't think it matters what you give a cat... as long as it's made out of yarn. I know for my cats, they will attack anything that even remotely smells/looks like yarn. Smiley
