Ok, so he's a little bit sweet Ü. He's actually a "Mousie" from Ysolda's book.
I knit him in about 24 hours, partly because I was itching to cast-on something new (so it may as well be something quick) and partly because it occurred to me that I once knit Byron a toy when he was 10 months old.
Byron is not going to like that this is Jasmine's, though. He got all upset when he wasn't allowed to take it to bed (even though it was still missing eyes and an ear). I must admit, it is soft and cuddly!
I used my pair of 2.5mm knit-picks circulars, but I made it from 8ply alpaca (DK), which is why it looks more like a rat than a mouse. It's grey alpaca from Bendigo Woollen Mills and "Faye" (DK alpaca) in "Blush" (semi-solid pink) from Wired for Fibre.
