Catnip Mouse

A while back, as we were searching the shelves in our favorite used book store, I found a gem that I snagged up quickly:  Knitted Toy Tales, by Laura Long. Of course, all of the patterns in this book are adorable, but one of the main reasons I purchased it was for the knitted mouse pattern. 

The kitties at my house devour hand knitted toys.  Especially the ones filled with lots and lots of catnip. So when I had some free time last week, I made them a new toy.  This one is especially made with love since I took the time to attach the ears and actually make a face for this little guy.  Plus, the yarn was hand dyed by me!  Okay, so I didn't dye it on the same day, it was left over from a previous project.
Overall, it was a huge hit! Both of the cats really loved it and played with it for hours.  See Lexus' reaction here.  She loves it!  Don't even try to take it from her.
