I made a mouse

Okay, so I woke up today--not feeling much better than yesterday--and declared that I would do the bare necessities for work today, and do something fun for myself. So. I made a mouse. I've discovered the ETSY website, and found many cute things there. I don't want to buy anything, I just want to make my own. My favorites, so far, have been knit or crochet animals and toys. So, I went to the library today to get the book for my book club next Monday (I guess I'd better start reading) and checked out four books with knit and crochet animals. I made the smallest animal for which I could find a pattern--this cute little mouse! I'm pretty proud of it. (He is about 3 or 4 inches long, with a 5 or 6 inch tail...) I think I'll try a bigger animal next!!! There are cute monkey and bear patterns out there... Hmmm... What would Alex and Joseph like? This one looks like I should just rub catnip all over it and let the kitties have it. But it is too cute! So I'm keeping him. He is sitting on my desk.
