A Knitted May Day Mouse .....

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm back today with a cute little May Day mouse. It's from May's edition of Simply Knitting and there is a whole set of them to knit, this one is one of the May Queen's attendant.


I hadn't got any 3mm needles but they came free with the magazine with the pattern booklet so all I needed was some leftover wool and I was away, she only measures 11cm and is so sweet. What do you think I should name her, do you think she looks like a Meg ?
Over the last few months I have seen so many people using washi tape, well better late then never I have finally got round to getting some.


I saw these little beauty's in Paperchase, last week, I just love that shop and can spend absolutely ages in there browsing all the notebooks, pens, papers, stickers and the list goes on........They had a whole stand of these gorgeous little rolls, the two large ones at the front are fabric, so are very tactile.
Well. that's me done then for today, I'll be back soon, hopefully with something using my new tapes.

We are big fans of washi tape here. There are even dispensers for them. We're so lucky to have Japantown nearby.
The little mouse is adorable from head to toe!
