Wesley's blanket and mouse....

Well here they are finally. I must admit I like the blanket. The colors are so much fun. For some reason I have a lot of that color around at the moment. I wasn't sure about the mouse until I put the ears on! Until then I thought it looked really stupid. I have an idea to make this mouse with canvas and beads. I think the pattern would look really interesting.

I found out that my other sister, Ra'Net, who is pregnant will be having a boy also! One niece out of 6 kids....just doesn't seem fair for a crafter! But that is ok, I will just have to keep my eye out for boy crafts! Better go, got another blanket to buy the yarn for, denim I think this time!

The mouse is so cute! And I love the blanket. Did you use a pattern? You have probably written that somewhere else I will go and look...

Craftypeople...I loved the colors too. I have so much of that dark color of green around right now...but have a thing for it!

Kendra - I got the pattern out of Lucinda Guy's Handknits for Kids book (I think that is the title anyway.)
