Since our neighbors are so nice that Byron keeps asking to go visit them, (and I also needed an excuse) I made their daughter's daughter a Mousie.
Mousie 1 was knit in fluffy 8ply alpaca, and Mousie 2 was knit in smooth 5ply crepe wool. It's a little like knitting with cotton, but the end result is nice and smooth. The 5ply makes the mouse quite a bit smaller, though I used the same needles.
Took this one for Kel, who liked the similar photo in the book. Ysolda's a better photographer than I am, of course, and doesn't use her two-year-old's blocks. Ü
I dyed a 50g ball of white into the pink/yellow mix. The whole mouse weighs 15g. What shall I do with the rest? Maybe it would make a cute hat for her Ü
