knit-mouse-2-sam-checking-moouseThis is the second Dickensian Party Mouse Cook, by Alan Dart that I have knit. For details on yarn, additional notes, or to compare mice, go to my post on the first one I knit. I made this one for a Christmas gift.

The pictures may get scrambled in this post. I am working on it. Frustrating. WordPress does not handle several pictures without a lot of text. Argh!

This mouse came out a little different than the original. I was better at my increases, an decreases so the quality of the work was better. You cannot really tell in the pictures. Her head came out bigger this time, not due to overstuffing. I like the narrower head of my first one better as you can better see the eyes. The eyes on this one needs some adjustment. I think they squint a little bit. I may not have time to do this since at the time I am writing this, it is about time to give gifts. Maybe I can do it after. With the bigger head, the hat did fit much better and I did not have to adjust it much.

knit-mouse-2-aelfi-checking-mouseAbout the only change, other than once again moving the cake off center, was to addknit-mouse-2-back-tilt a tiny bit of stuffing for the feet. In the direction it did not say to stuff the feet. But I found a tiny bit does help her stand. Once again I added the feet last so I could place them where she would stand up better.

In some ways I like how this one turned out better(overall quality) and in other ways I prefer the original mouse (head). It is interesting how they turn out slightly different when the pattern stays the same.

Here they are together. The first one I knit is the second one in this picture. It is a good thing as you will see below.


As you can see (rightish), my cat decided to help. 🙂  The mice survived. knit-mouse-2-cat-peeking3
(Excuse the bird seed. This was under a messy bird cage.)

Ninja!

I now have to type a bunch of stuff so I can add more pictures. Sorry about this.   I hope I can get this fixed.
