Mice for cats?
Odd question, but does anyone have a pattern for those tiny catnip mice or do you just knit a scrap, stuff catnip and cotton, glue eyes, and sew in tail?

Thanks!

Spooky, the Humane Society gets the credit for the name, but she's a black kitty, just like your avatar. :D We all love the name though!

Ingrid, you're everywhere. I can't believe you have over 4000 posts and you joined a few months ago. You deserve some sort of prize!! Silver knitting needles?

Is it just me or are the instructions for the mice really difficult for a beginner? They look very complicated!

Yeah, it's my home-within-a-home, I guess. The mouse that Spooky posted is really just a lot of increases then decreases. It is felted later--good to keep the catnip in.

I've never even heard of felting! My next project was going to be a few dish rags and practice increasing and decreasing.

Would you have any suggestions for a second project? My first is the scarf, and it seems to be coming along okay. I've done 13.5 inches and have 38.5 left to go!

You know how when you put a wool sweater in the washing machine and goes in women's size 10 and comes out toddler size 2? That's felting.

Knitted washclothes are an excellent way to practice. You get to do all the basics, plus switch back and forth from k to p, and it gets done quickly. In fact, if you get tired of the scarf, take a break with a quick project, and the scarf won't seem as long anymore.
