Warm Woolen Mittens!

Mice

This is the first in my Christmas Carol Critters series of patterns – Warm Woolen Mittens!!

Each pattern in this series will be based on one of my favourite Christmas Carols or stories.  Although not officially a Christmas Carol, “My Favourite Things” from “Sound of Music” has become very popular as a holiday song in recent years. I am a long-time fan of both the movie and the song, so I just had to include it in this series!

These little mice in their warm woolen mittens would make lovely child-friendly Christmas ornaments or even mini stockings!  Just imagine waking up to this little friend hanging by your bed or on your tree with his mitten full of tiny treats!

“L” is For Love Nest

I have finally completed the “L” is for Love Nest pattern, from my “A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge List! This one kept me hopping for quite a while as I just couldn’t seem to make the picture in my head come to life! I am really happy with finished project, it would make a lovely Christmas tree ornament and the pattern will also include a version with little flowers and spring-time leaves! This ornament is very child friendly too, no pointy or breakable bits and the birds can come out of their little nest for some play time!

I will be adding the pattern to my Ravelry and Etsy stores soon, just have to finish the spring-time sample!

This will be the last project from the Alphabet Challenge list for awhile unless one of the topics just happens to strike my fancy.  I have three series of patterns that I am making a priority in the next two to three months:

  1. Twelve Days of Christmas – a series of 12 patterns representing the 12 items from the 12 Days of Christmas song.
  2. Musical Mice – a series of 12 patterns with Muris Mouse depicting 12 of my favourite Christmas Carols.
  3. Nativity Scene – a series of patterns for a complete Nativity Scene.

I will be posting pictures of each of these items as they are completed and will be making the patterns available on my shops with the intention of offering each series as an E-book!

I am very excited about these projects and can’t wait to get started, who needs time for sleep and food?!!

Meadow Mouse

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, the only creature  stirring was this little mouse!

I have always had a bit of a thing for cute little mouse characters, hence the name MurisKnits (Muris is Latin for mouse)!  These little guys look adorable hanging out on a holiday tree and would make a lovely stocking stuffer!

The MurisKnits Meadow Mouse pattern is now available for sale on my Etsy and Ravelry stores and these little guys are squeaking with delight!!
