It is true, well actually there are about 13 frozen mice in my freezer. The intention is to take them to the World Bird Sanctuary as an edible donation. Living adjacent to a field, we end up with field mice each year that run from the outside elements. I think I picked up my wierdness from my mother.
But speaking of mice. Friday Fun means it is time to share a toy. I think toys are possibly my favorite thing to knit. I have a bunch of books of toys, and I haven’t knit near as many as I’d like. I just recently purchased the new Spud & Chloe book. I absolutely love Susan Anderson’s books, I own them all. Her designs are so cute. I really want to knit every single item in the Spud & Chloe book and make a cute farm for some little kid. It’d better be for a child still in the womb though as I think it’ll take me a while.
Friday Fun Project Share: This week I fell in love with Matilda the Mouse by Mr. Puffy. That has got to be the cutest mouse I’ve ever seen, and for some reason reminded me of the children’s book, The Secret of Nimh, I think Mrs. Frisby could have been this fashionable mouse at one point before her husband died.
Anyway. I cast on the second bib last night, and knit nearly the entire thing in about 3 hours. Just have to do the i-cord ties and edging. I quite possible could get the first one finished today at work, or nearly so. I decided to just knit these up and be done with the obligation knitting. This weekend I hope to finish up the blanket (except for the edging) that I’m weaving, so next week when I have a few days off I can warp the loom for more of the log-cabin project. I actually need to do some figuring out on that though. Happy Friday every one.
