Ooh, la souris de tricotage!

I have no idea if Google got that translation right. But check it out, is this deserving of excitement so thorough it becomes French, or what? It's the fabulous freezer-paper-stencilled bag that the ever-so-talented Elinoire made for me for Hanukah. Woo, I am lucky!



Here is the little mouse knitting away:



Here she is wearing her finished sweater. What finery!

I'm already using it to store a knitting project, this one the start of some mitred squares in cotton/acrylic as a baby blanket. No actual baby in mind for this one as it'll probably take a long time. I LOVE knitting project bags and every one I own is in use. This is SO CUTE!

Just to prove I'm still doing actual knitting, here is most of the second child's vest from April's yarn. I messed up and did the armhole in stockinette instead of my planned garter. I'll pick it out and fix it later. And ooh, yes, that is Jen's marvellous entrelac bag that I'm storing it in!



This is me swatching linen/cotton for the adult Star Stitch sweater:

Now, that is cute! Though I may choose to imagine the creature as a rat myself. ;)

What a great bag! You can never have too many knitting bags as far as I'm concerned :)

Those mousies are so fabulous!

I like how all her mousies are so talented. And of course the Cutest Mousies Ever.
