Rat Scarf
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.
