Thinking about mice

You left me last time thinking about knitting vintage style toys. Unfortunately before I'd really got started I found these cute little mice in one of my Mabel Lucie Attwell books and decided mice would now be top of my knitting list.

And so I 've spent the week knitting mice (or trying to). I've designed a variety of different mouse heads and body parts and eventually put together a pattern for a little lady that made me smile.
Her name is Darcy and she measures just 17cm (7ins) to the top of her ears.

This dainty little mouse loves to dance and you will find the pattern for her in my Etsy shop

I'm so in love with mice that I'm now working on a little boy mouse. If he turns out well I hope he will join Darcy in my Etsy shop by next week.
