Mouse Trap!

Yay - Its Friday! Its been a long week and I'm looking forward to the weekend! First though here's my finished object


This was a super easy and quick knit! Which was just what I needed as the other projects I'm working on (Christmas gifts) are all causing me problems, in fact I have ripped out several things and more than once, so this little mouse was light relief! Phoebe I hope is still blissfully unaware that this little mouse exists but a few fellow bloggers have mentioned that their cats are avid bloggers so I'm slightly concerned Phoebe is a secret blogger, trust me she could be, she's sneaky enough!

Well I'm off to check out Tami's blog and see other Fo's!

  1. Oh, how cute!! My kitties would delight in a creature like this!
    ...but, alas, it would end up under the stove, like all toy mice!

  7. Sorry about the problematic Christmas knits, but oh my gosh, cutest little mouse ever. I'm glad it was a fun knit, too! The colours and stripes and tail and simple little eye are all perfect. If I were a cat, I'd totally want one. (...Okay. I want one anyway. It would look so cute perched on a shelf!)
