A little preamble to this project. I have a 7 year old grandson who knows that I have a thing about any kind of rodents. It has been a teasing joke between us since he was old enough to understand. He buys me mice and rat ceramics, cards, wrapping paper, anything that has rodents on it or whatever. I play along with it even when a particular thing doesn't give me the creeps and thought it would be fun to knit him up a rat scarf for Christmas so here it is. I imagine he will be chasing me around the house with it at Christmas. It is the first thing I have done since getting out of the hospital and I now feel pretty well and am going back to knitting full force. Thanks for looking. Oh and it is a pattern from Morehouse Merino.

Aw, how sweet of you to knit that for him. He's seven? He'll love it. Boys that age are so much fun.

He'll get a REAL KICK out of it I'm sure and yes, I would expect that you'll be getting chased around with it to creep you out, as though having to knit those little rats didn't already. Rats.... yuck. BUT the scarf IF very cute for a little boy with a thing for rodents. LOL. You did a great job on this! ALMOST makes me think rats are cute...almost.

Thank you Nat! I am feeling loads better. I am adjusting to living if only temporarily with an ostomy bag. Can't say I am looking forward to June when I have to go back in and they reverse everything, but I don't think about it now. I just knit, knit, knit now that I feel better!

Oh my! I have a GF that would love that! :teehee:
But it would have to be in white to match her rats.

I have a 7-yr-old myself--he must've loved it, right?! Chasing grandma was probably the best part of it!!!!

Can't wait to hear the story :) I can just see his face as he makes you squeeeeeellll. Isn't being a grandma fun .. especially those "just between us" moments.
