Some of you will be pleased to know they aren’t the real-live kind, though I do have pet rats, but that’s another story…
The creative gene probably came to me via my Mother, who has been making things for years, even when she was quite a young child, and her Mother did also. She is a fantastic knitter, she could probably do things in her sleep, and her current thing to make is mice. The highly cute kind.
Here’s some pictures of the first batch (or at least most recent, she has made them before) and I persuaded her to make little Halloween version too. She gets patterns, and then adapts them, and makes different clothes etc.
Please note, that I didn’t inherit the knitting gene sadly, I am rubbish.
