Autumn Mice!

I'm using up some odds and ends of yarn and found this cute, cute pattern for crocheted mice - perfect as cat toys!

The pattern is very well written and easy to follow.  I used KnitPicks Cotlin and a size E hook.  The only change I made was to make the ears first and attach them and embroider the eyes after row 15, before I add any stuffing.  That way all the knots are on the inside.  For the eyes, I used a doubled six strand floss and sewed several straight stitches.

Being autumn mice, they've been in search of some autumn color ....

... and were last seen headed for New Hampshire!

Happy Creating!  Deborah
