Some Knitted Christmas Surprises

Getting up-to-date at last!  Here are some photos of some of the surprises I knitted for my girls. 

Firstly, I sat these mice on their pillows on Christmas Eve night with a label saying "Twas the night before Christmas..." and then I put a special message for each of them in the mouse's stocking. 

The mice are based on a pattern by Alan Dart, you can see some of his amazing patterns here

I gave each mouse a lovely long night cap and a colourful stocking.

Each mouse is about 4 inches high - so cute - I'm really happy with these. 

This globe, I made for Grace. 

It's knitted in the round and is quite challenging but great fun to make. 

Details of the pattern can be seen at the Ravelry pattern page, here.   


  1. Those mice are just so cute I had a chuckle. Interesting globe and so well done! I have a couple of Alans patterns especially the Tabby cat which I am working on now!

  2. Hi! I just found your blog tonight. Although I haven't learned to knit yet, I have been crocheting for 17 years. You have so many nice patterns, many that I bookmarked!
