Introducing Mousie

When I was a kid, I had two imaginary mice named pinky and blinky that would live in my pocket. Apparently my mother was quite concerned that her daughter was talking to these imaginary friends and she tried to divert my attention to other real stuffed animals. While my daughter has had an imaginary cat friend (a purple cat that likes to come with her to restaurants), she has always wanted a real mouse. After some negotiation, we agreed on a stuff mouse, from Lucinda Guy's Designs for Kids: Handknits & Things.

Webs had Debbie Bliss' Baby Cashmerino, which is washable and the right gauge. The child request a pink and purple mouse. You stitch the mouse in lots of little pieces and then sew up the body. We had a stuffing session last night:

Add the ears and some whiskers and mousie was ready to play.

For once an item I knitted for the child is happily accepted. Mousie went to sleep with the small one and off to school as well.

I love my Mousie!

I know you haven't heard much from me this past week. I was taking care of a very cranky cat. Rollins had to have one of his bottom long teeth removed since the enamel was completely worn away. After surgery he wasn't feeling really great. Mousie wanted to keep him company. Isn't that too cute!
