The Blanket and The Mouse

This little mouse and blanket is made of some of the softest, nicest yarn I've ever worked with.  It's a blend of cotton and cashmere, so it has GORGEOUS stitch definition, and is luxuriously soft.  It's called Aimee, by Louisa Harding. This is actually the second project I've made with this yarn, but I forgot to get pictures of the first one, which was a beautiful double knit lap blanket.  The woman I made these for sent me the yarn, and I think I'm in love with this woman.  Not really.  I'm in love with my husband, but she keeps sending me boxes of this incredible yarn (all different kinds, for all different kinds of projects) and leaves me a lot of leeway to design what she wants.  I've made her a couple of soakers, and now we're working on some home accessories for her house.  I'm really enjoying her projects!  It's nice to take a break from soakers for a bit and do something challenging and different. Wait 'til you see the bedspread I'm making her! Watch out!

Teresa, I'm so glad you found me. I'm so happy to be working with you!  I hope you love this little blankie and mouse as much as I enjoyed making them!
