The adventures of Mama Mouse and Papa Mouse

Once upon a time there was a Mama Mouse and a Papa Mouse.

At first they look like ordinary little mice.

But if you look more closely, you will find that they are actually rather special.

With a pretty coloured band around their tummies, they are Fair Isle mice.

And now they have come to live at my house and entertain my cats.  If you follow me on instagram, you will see that they are popular additions to the household.

These very cute little mice were knitted by my mum using this pattern (there is also a pattern for teeny tiny baby mice).  Wasn't she nice to make a present for her grand-cats?

Linking up with finish it up friday at crazy mom quilts.
