Mice, mice, baby!


Remember my 17 mice from last year? Well, I made 8 more this year! They are selling so well that I may have to make a few more soon.


I used one ball of handdyed-with-KoolAid Marks&Kattens Eco Ull for these mice. They were all knit on 6mm needles. I made them all smaller than the original instructions call for, as my gauge is much bigger.


I love knitting these little mice, but I had so much trouble felting them! They're so small, they pile up between the washing machine hatch and the drum, refusing to felt (I have a frontloader as almose everyone in Europe).


Not before my husband had the brilliant idea of putting the mice in a net bag (you know the ones oranges come in?), sew the bag closed and felt the mice in the bag did they really felt. What a great idea! I'll do that every time now.
