Logan (a.k.a. Lolo) belongs to Anny Purls and is about to have his first birthday. We are super happy to be working with her. This Hickory Dickory Dot sweater is knit with our favorite Karabella Aurora 8 yarn. This color combo is called Prairie Mouse. The Teddy Bear below is sporting Wine Country Mouse. The other mouse colors are pretty cute too. I am really hoping someone knits City Mouse and sends us a picture.
It was a blast to listen to all the comments from passers by. They would ahhh at the picture then come take a peek at the sweater we had hanging in the crib (Anny was nice enough to send it to us for Stitches). Everyone loved the lap shoulder design and it gets even better ... the mouse squeaks! Yup, there is a bit of batting and a little squeaker in there. So many kids were delighted by the squeak that I myself was delighted it was still there on Sunday evening! We are including a squeaker in all our projects because it is so very fun.
Looks like the mouse for this guy was out looking for cheese (to go with his wine) during this photo. Lots of thanks to Rachel (Naptime Knits) in Connecticut for knitting this sample for us - it finished it's journey out west in the knick of time!
We have updated our home page with this project. It is so very pretty. Knitters can buy just the pattern or the project with yarn and that squeaker.
